The incident on Friday triggered panic on the airport's vast plaza, which is criss-crossed by thousands of people every day making their way to and from the departures and arrivals halls.

The 29-year-old is in an Amsterdam hospital, Steven said, adding that the man appeared to have acted alone.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting are not yet clear and police have not revealed whether the incident was terror related. There were no reports of other injuries.

A man with a knife walked into the police service's office at an Amsterdam airport and threatened staff with a knife, military police say. 'He was injured and has been taken into custody'.

In the Netherlands, the police opened fire on the man, who was armed with a knife.

"This is not a terror attack for us".
