The shooting happened at around 10:30 p.m. Responding officers found the injured victim on the sidewalk. Paramedics treated him at the scene before transporting him to hospital. The man was conscious and able to communicate with aid workers, but the severity of his injuries is unknown.

The police are investigating exactly what happened. Witnesses reported seeing a dark colored Volkswagen Golf drive away from the scene after the shooting. Investigators would like to talk to witnesses and make contact with anyone who may have surveillance camera footage of the incident. 

Half an hour before the shooting on Dickenslaan, the police also received a report of shots being fired on Kelbergen.
