Joey D. from Rosmalen has succumbed to his injuries, his lawyer said, according to broadcaster NOS. The 27-year-old man injured himself while holed-up in a home in Rosmalen on Tuesday, refusing to turn himself over to the police, according to the police. He was rushed to hospital by ambulance.
Convict Joey D. (27) was arrested in a house on Schoolstraat in Rosmalen on Tuesday evening after an hours-long standoff with the police. The man had injured himself and was taken to hospital by ambulance in "very critical condition", authorities said on Wednesday. The armed man barricaded himself in the house shortly after the court in Den Bosch convicted him on appeal and sentenced him to 15 years and 6 months in prison for killing his uncle Martie Heesbeen at the end of 2014, the Public Prosecution Service (OM) confirmed.
The police solved the murder of a 60-year-old man, who was found beaten to death in a parking garage in The Hague earlier this month, thanks to a DNA match. The perpetrator is a 20-year-old man from The Hague, who died shortly after the murder, AD reports.
A shooting incident involving a Kalashnikov or other form of assault rifle in Putte on Wednesday left a young couple terrified. An Audi parked on Schoolstraat was riddled with bullets. And one stray bullet shot straight through the couple's house.
