The man arrested by heavily-armed police on a train waiting in Eindhoven station on Thursday evening is wanted in connection with a shooting in Dordrecht on October 18, police said on Friday.

The man, who is 24, is the third suspect to be arrested in connection with the incident, in which a 17-year-old youth was shot and seriously injured.

The arrest caused chaos for train travellers, who were kept waiting for almost two hours while police in combat gear combed trains looking for the suspect.

Photographs show the young man, surrounded by police on the stairs at the station after his arrest.
