The police confirmed on Friday that the burnt-out Volkswagen Transporter found on Thursday in Duivendrecht is indeed the escape car of one of the perpetrators of the deadly shooting on the Escapade in Amstelveen.
During the shooting that took place Thursday evening at 5.15 pm, 39-year-old Rachid K. died. The police are looking for witnesses who have seen the flight car or have footage of it.
This is a Volkswagen, type Transporter, flight car that is equipped with blind windows. The van had fake license plates and was found burning about twenty minutes after the shooting at the Buitensingel in Duivendrecht. The police would also like to know if people noticed something suspicious on the Buitensingel in the days before the fire.
The shot K. was an acquaintance of the police. He was shot in front of a gym on the Escapade in Amstelveen near his car while a four-year-old child was sitting in the back seat. The child has remained unharmed and taken care of by family.
Het Parool reports on the basis of insiders that it is probably a liquidation. K. is said to be a member of a group that lives at war with the group around the fugitive criminal Ridouan Taghi. The police have not yet confirmed this in the context of the investigation.
