Dutch prosecutors said Tuesday they were investigating a possible terrorist motive behind the shooting on a tram in the city of Utrecht in which three people were killed and five wounded. A Turkish-born man, 37-year-old Gokmen Tanis, was arrested after a seven-hour manhunt conducted Monday by security forces and remained in custody.Prosecutors said he is suspected of three fatal shootings, possibly with terrorist intent. Under Dutch law Tanis must be brought before a judge by Thursday but does not yet have to be charged.Dutch media published details of two of the victims killed Monday -- the 19-year-old woman reportedly worked in a cafe in Vianen, and a father-of-three who volunteered as a soccer coach in Vleuten, a town west of Utrecht.
