Patrons at the cafe managed to capture the shooter, a 45-year-old man, and hold him until police arrived, Rotterdam Police spokesman Gerde Jung told CNN.

Police arrested the man and recovered his weapon, Jung said.

The shooting was probably the the result of a quarrel the man had earlier, but details of that argument were unclear, Jung said.

All of the victims were male, he said.
