After a terrifying experience at an Amsterdam store, Apple says that all employees and customers are safe. The company said there is still an ongoing investigation.
The statement was provided by an Apple spokesman.
The statement came hours after the police resolved a hostage situation within the flagship store, which saw a man hold at least one person hostage for hours. At the time of the standoff, residents were told to stay indoors and away from the popular area.
The police stopped the man with a car after he ran out of the store.
The hostage taker is out of the Apple Store and a robot is checking him for explosives. He is under the control of police officers. The hostage is okay.
The police have not commented on the possible motives of the shooter. According to the AP, AT5 suggested that the hostage taker was attempting an armed robbery.
