A 32-year-old man was killed in a shooting in the Rotterdam district of Katendrecht, in the south of the city, on Sunday. Exactly what happened is not yet clear.

A person was arrested shortly after the incident on Rechthuislaan, but was later released because he was not involved in the shooting, the Rotterdam police said on Twitter. 

The police believe the gunman fled on the back of a scooter. A burning scooter was found on Schulpweg. Whether it was used in the shooting, is under investigation.

The police are investigating what happened and call on witnesses to come forward.
