The man who was seriously injured after being surrounded by the police in Rosmalen on Tuesday, is still in a critical condition in the hospital and is not accountable, the Public Prosecution Service (OM) reported Wednesday.
This is 27-year-old Joey D., who was sentenced Tuesday to 15.5 years in prison for the murder of his 49-year-old uncle Martie Heesbeen in December 2014. The man was previously acquitted for lack of evidence.
The police arrived Tuesday at the man's house on Schoolstraat to arrest him.
The situation escalated when D. turned out to have a weapon. He entrenched himself in his home, also shooting. Police negotiators tried to persuade the suspect to surrender and would have used a megaphone.
At around 7.30 p.m. the arrest team entered the home, whereupon the suspect seriously injured himself. He was then transferred to the hospital.
The National Criminal Investigation Department announced on Wednesday that it would investigate the events in Rosmalen. "It is important to find out exactly what happened yesterday. This is done by the National Criminal Investigation Department. After all, the role of the police is also looked into, avoiding any appearance of bias," said the public prosecutor.
