Witnesses after attack: ‘We had heard bangs, then he comes running here’

RTL also spoke to staff at a café-restaurant on Spiegelgracht, about 150 meters from the crime scene. Kok Hassan was working there when he heard the shots. “I was cleaning and suddenly I heard at least three shots,” he tells the station. Once outside, he saw someone lying on the street. “A woman immediately ran outside and started to help him. It was so intense.”

Witnesses told both RTL and the ANP that the shooter appeared to be hiding something under his clothing. “He had something in his hands that he was trying to hide,” the ANP quotes a woman as saying. At RTL, another witness says that the perpetrator wore a mouth cap and therefore stood out. “I only saw then that he was holding something in his hand, which he was holding very close to his body. Only then did it dawn on me: shit, someone just got shot.”

Victim support is available for anyone who has seen the attack on De Vries take place, or who has seen him lying on the street. “They are ready for them”, Mayor Halsema said at the end of the evening.
