Shooting in the Hague leaves Belarusian man seriously hurt

A shooting incident on Allard Personlaan in The Hague early on Wednesday morning left a 56 year old Belorussian man seriously injured. An air ambulance lifted him to a nearby hospital. He is out of life threatening danger, but could not be question by the police as of yet, Den Haag FM reports.

According to the broadcaster, the man was smoking on the street around 3:00 a.m. on Wednesday when four or five men approached him. One of the perpetrators pulled a pistol and fired on the man, hitting him in the side.

The perpetrators fled after the shooting, presumably in a black Nissan and a silver car. The police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
