Shooting at Antwerp pasta bar

A shooting took place early this morning at a pasta bar on the Abdijstraat in the Kiel area of Antwerp. The police received reports of shots having been fired at around 5am.

A police patrol vehicle was sent to the scene and saw that the front of the pasta bar had been damaged. There were two bullet holes and a bullet sleeve was found in the vicinity. The Judicial Authorities have opened an investigation. A few months ago another business in the same street was shot at. It is as yet still unclear whether the two incidents are connected.
