Male with gun enters NOS Public Broadcasting studio in The Netherlands and demands LIVE airtime

A man with a gun has invaded the premises of a public broadcasting studio in Hilversum. He demanded  airtime and had gained access to the editorial floor.

The  “well-dressed man” has been arrested and taken away by the Dutch police. He would have been overpowered by a security guard.

Pictures of the male are being shared on social media networks:

The staff has been removed from the building at the Journal Square, in The Netherlands. The Dutch police is currently searching the building and the area is shut down. The police is also using helicopters to keep a view on the area.

It seems, according to Peter Brothers, mayor of Hilversum, that the evacuation is carried out safely. The mayor is on the way to the Journal Square.
