The man who was surrounded for hours by the police in Rosmalen on Schoolstraat, was taken to the hospital after he seriously injured himself, the police report on Twitter. The man had an automatic weapon and, according to police, fired agents from the house earlier in the day.
Bystanders heard a dull bang and several shots during the arrest. According to police spokesman Imca van Dijk, no one was injured in addition to the suspect.
The police surrounded the house on Tuesday after a shot change took place earlier in the day between the suspect and agents. They tried to arrest the man, but saw that he had a firearm. This would have escalated the situation.
At the location, police negotiators tried to persuade the suspect to surrender and would have used a megaphone for this.
The police cannot confirm the identity of the man, but Omroep Brabant , among others, reports that it is Joey D .. He was sentenced Tuesday on appeal to 15.5 years in prison for the murder of his uncle in 2014, but the 27 -year-old man loves to be innocent.
Lawyer: 'Come out in your underpants'
In an interview with the Eindhovens Dagblad , his lawyer Jan-Hein Kuijpers says that he has received a text from D., saying "I did not shoot".
The lawyer did not hear from D. after this, but sent back that he had the best time to go outside in his underpants: "Because if such an arrest team comes in, it is not going smoothly," he tells the Eindhovens Dagblad.
The lawyer also states that he is appealing in cassation against the judgment of the appeal. D. was convicted for the murder of his 49-year-old uncle Martie Heesbeen. According to the Court, he would have prematurely shot his uncle the moment the victim walked his dog.
