Police officers have swung into action, opening fire on a man carrying a knife and threatening at an airport.
The police officers opened fire on the man
According to a Daily Star UK report, some armed cops open fire on a knifeman threatening passengers at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport in heart-stopping eyewitness footage from the dramatic scene.
Dutch police evacuated the international airport, 9km west of Amsterdam, after the man threatened to use the knife.
Dramatic video shows four armed officers with guns rushing towards a Starbucks in the airport terminal before shots are heard.
Taking cover behind a pillar, one officer wearing a bullet proof vest appears to take aim as he swoops on the suspect.
In a tweet, the Marechaussee police said "the situation is safe" as the man has been detained and removed from the scene.
There are no reports of injuries and the airport – one of Europe's biggest – has now reopened.
“Man shot by the military police at Schiphol Airport after he threatened [people] with a knife," the force said on Twitter.
“Situation is under control. More information to be announced.”
The man appeared to be led away on a stretcher after being shot
In a later tweet, it added: “The suspect was overpowered, detained and taken away.”
Eyewitness pictures from the scene apparently show the suspect being led away on a stretcher by paramedics.
Other pictures show an area outside a Starbucks coffee shop cordoned off by police, suggesting that is where the incident upfolded.
"The man threatened with a knife and the military police shot him," police spokesman Stan Verberkt said.
"He was injured and has been taken into custody."
There are no further details about the suspect or his motives as yet.
Europe is still on high alert after a wave of terror attacks across the continent over the past year.
