Three injured in shooting at summer carnival

Two people and a gunman have been injured in a shooting at a summer carnival in the Dutch city of Rotterdam.

Police say one of the victims who was shot has been taken to hospital, alongside the gunman who was shot by police several times moments after.

Both the suspect and the victim were arrested.

Police said a woman was also injured in a fall while walking away from the incident, which took place near Coolsingel – a street in central Rotterdam at around 8.45pm on Saturday.


Shortly after the incident, police officers arrested a third suspect near Van Oldenbarneveltplaats, who they say is suspected of involvement in the incident.

Earlier on Saturday, there was also a shooting incident in Coolsingel.

Police say that at the moment there does not seem to be a connection between the two incidents, but the possibility is being included in the investigation.

Zomercarnaval, a Dutch Caribbean festival, which is one of Europe’s biggest street parties, had been taking place in the city on Saturday.
