Belgium: Turkish shooting incidents

For the second time this week a shooting incident involving Turks took place. In both incidents there were no injuries.

The first took place on Wednesday in Antwerp. It started off as a fight in a building and quickly erupted outside. Police later arrested seven Turks and one Dutch-Turk on suspicion of being involved. Apparently there were either one or two shooters. Prosecution charged them with attempted murder, violating the weapons law, and intentional assault and battery.

The second incident took place in Ghent, at about midnight Saturday. Several shots were fired during a fight between Turks. Numerous cartridges were found in the street. The fight took place after a car drove into a pizzeria. The street in question has a high concentration of Turkish and Indian restaurants.
