People attend the service for the victims of the shooting at the Ridderhof shopping centre in Alphen aan de Rijn April 10, 2011. A gunman's deadly rampage through a shopping mall was met on Sunday with disbelief by residents of a quiet Dutch town who once thought such carnage could not happen in their country. Dressed in camouflage trousers and a bomber jacket, Tristan van der Vlis opened fire with an automatic weapon in a parking lot on Saturday and walked calmly into Ridderhof mall, where he continued shooting. Six people died, including a woman of 91 and an 80-year-old man, and 17 were wounded, including two children aged six and 10-years-old. The 24-year-old gun club member then shot and killed himself.
