The shooting is believed to be a settling of accounts. The shop's owner was an Antwerp football hooligan in another life. He told VRT: "I was part of Antwerp's hard core. I was arrested and the police analysed the data on my cell phone. The information was used to arrest several people and they were not happy bunnies. This is revenge."
Fortunately nobody was injured in the attack. Police have cordoned off the area and technicians are at work looking for evidence. Police and prosecutor sources are unwilling to confirm the owner's account of events.
