The Maaspoort area in Den Bosch was woken by gunfire during the early hours of Monday morning as a home on Stapelen was targeted in a shooting. On social media local residents describe the shots as sounding like machine gun- or automatic gunfire.

According to Omroep Brabant, the lower shutter of the home is riddled with bullet holes. The window behind the shutter was also severely damaged. Several surveillance cameras can be seen around the home. 

The police confirmed the shooting, saying it happened around 3:00 a.m. No one was injured. So far the police have not stated what type of weapon was used in the shooting.

It is unclear whether the residents were home during the shooting. According to the broadcaster, they consist of a man, a woman and children and they were seen at the building later on Monday morning.

In December the Tax authorities' investigative department FIOD raided the home as part of an investigation into money laundering. According to the Telegraaf, the home's resident is 33-year-old Faysal F. His luxurious lifestyle with no visible means of support led to the FIOD investigation, the newspaper writes.
