Den Bosch – Around 8 p.m. last night a shooting incident took place on the Zandzuiderstraat. A few hours later, around 1:30 am, it hit the Rompertdreef. In both incidents, shots were fired at cars. No one else was injured. The detective has launched an investigation into both incidents and would like to get in touch with people who know more.
Around 8 p.m. we received a report that a witness had heard several shots at the parking lot of ‘s-Hertogenbosch Oost station. The reporter then saw two dark-colored cars with several occupants driving away from the parking lot. Both the cars in question and the occupants were no longer found by colleagues who rushed to the scene. Several shell casings were found. The street was widely closed off for further (traces) investigation. Among other things, a sniffer dog was deployed and colleagues spoke to various witnesses. The area was extensively searched for the possibly involved cars, but they were no longer found.
At 1:30 a.m., another shooting incident was reported. This time, on Rompertdreef, a white car was shot from a dark-colored car. Colleagues were able to track down the white car, after which a short chase ensued. The driver of the white car parked the car on Vierde Rompert and then fled through an alley into the park and managed to escape. Here, too, we immediately started an investigation and forensic investigators arrived on the scene. The abandoned car has been seized for further investigation.
As far as we know, no injuries were reported in either shooting. We still have many questions. What happened in both incidents? What preceded it? Naturally, the investigation will also include whether we see a connection between the two incidents, but for now both incidents are being investigated separately.
