The 18-year-old man who was shot dead in Ridderkerk on Monday evening was known to the judiciary as a drug extractor. He should appear before the juvenile judge next Thursday. The lawsuit is no longer going ahead due to his death. This is reported by De Telegraaf.
The victim, named Bilal, was reportedly recently released with an ankle bracelet from the National Juvenile Institution De Hartelborgt in Spijkenisse pending his trial. According to De Telegraaf, the 18-year-old man is known as a cocaine extractor in the port of Rotterdam. The same applies to the 17-year-old suspect who reported to the police station in Rotterdam on Tuesday morning on suspicion of involvement in Bilal’s death.
This boy will be brought before the examining magistrate on Friday, who will determine whether he should remain in custody longer. It is still unclear whether he is also the shooter. The victim may have been lured from his home by a group of young people.
The shooting took place around 7 p.m. on Olmenlaan, on a lawn near the Aldi. The victim was seriously injured and died of his injuries in hospital on Monday night.
The shooter fled. Based on the investigation, the police searched a house in Rotterdam-Beverwaard with an arrest team on Monday evening. Nothing was found there.
The police reported on Tuesday afternoon that a 17-year-old Rotterdam resident reported himself at the police station on Zuidplein in Rotterdam. Research led to him.
According to the Public Prosecution Service, more arrests cannot be ruled out. A motive for the shooting is not yet known.
