A 29-year-old man was shot in the head in an apartment on Geert Grootelaan in Vlaardingen on the night of Saturday 6 to Sunday 7 January around 2 a.m. He was seriously injured and has been in hospital in critical condition ever since. Three suspects were arrested the same day.

After intensive investigation, detectives were able to determine the identity of a fourth suspect. There were strong suspicions that this 17-year-old suspect might be in France. The suspect was arrested in France on Thursday in collaboration with the French police. The Netherlands will request his extradition.

Drugs

On Sunday, January 7, officers already arrested three suspects: two men aged 23 and 31 from Vlaardingen and a 24-year-old man from The Hague. They are suspected of possessing drugs, the police reported on Friday. Research shows that the house opposite the victim’s home has a link with the shooting. Not only was the 31-year-old suspect arrested there, but a significant amount of drugs was also found during a search. The police do not report what type of drugs and how much.

The examining magistrate has determined that the three previously arrested suspects will remain in custody for two weeks longer.

Signals

The investigation continues and more arrests cannot be ruled out. The police had previously released two descriptions of suspects.

There is no information yet about what led to the shooting. It is unclear whether this could possibly be a rip deal.
