Dutch police fire warning shot in drug suspects' arrest | Reuters

AMSTERDAM A police officer fired a warning shot during the arrests of three men near Amsterdam's central station on Tuesday evening, Dutch police said in a statement.

The incident, which appeared to be drug-related, took place as police at airports and train stations around the Netherlands were on a high alert following bomb attacks in Brussels earlier in the day.

Police cars had hemmed in the suspects' speeding vehicle on a major thoroughfare near the station after a pursuit and one suspect was immediately arrested.

Two others initially ran off but they were arrested after police closed in on them and fired the warning shot.
