Three Killed At Shooting At Jewish Museum In Brussels

At least three people were killed in a shooting in central Brussels at the city’s Jewish museum on Saturday, local media reported.

Three were immediately reported dead, and another person was said to be seriously wounded in the attack. However, Belgian newspaper La Libre later reported the death toll at four.

Local media claimed a suspect had been arrested and is currently being interrogated.

A spokesman for the Brussels fire brigade said the shooter drove up to the museum, went inside and fired shots, and then fled the scence. An eye witness told RTBF that at least six shots were fired.

“According to the information we have at the moment, it was a solitary shooter and it seems to have happened inside the museum,” Pierre Meys, Brussels fire brigade spokesman, told French channel BFM TV.

Brussels mayor Yvan Mayeur told Belgian TV station RTBF that at least four people, three men and a woman, were caught up in the attack. A number of ambulances were at the scene.

The museum and its surroundings have been sealed off
