A man was shot on Bos en Lommerweg in Amsterdam around 20:00 last night. He was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. Passing police officers found the man crawling across the street and called for a medical trauma team. The identity of the victim and the circumstances of the shooting is still unclear.

A bystander told AT5 that he saw two men coming from a nearby bar. They were drunk and arguing with each other. One of the men walked towards his car and the other pulled a gun and shot the man twice in the leg. Other witnesses reported hearing three or four shots.

The suspect, a slender man with black hair, fled in the direction of Haarlemmerweg. No one has been arrested yet.
