LAPD Statement on Netherlands Shooting NR19072dm

March 18, 2019

Los Angeles: Southern Californians once again awoke to the disturbing news of a terrorist attack, this time in Utrecht, Netherlands. The Los Angeles Police Department continues to communicate with fellow law enforcement partners both domestically and over-seas. At this time, there is no nexus to Los Angeles. However, we are working with the Metropolitan Transit Authority as well as other local agencies to ensure our commuting public is safe and secure. Out of an abundance of caution, the Department will have a very visible presence throughout the transit system. Today’s violence is a sobering reminder once again. If you should see something out of the ordinary, please notify authorities or report it to If you see something, say something.
