AMSTERDAM — Police in Oosterbeek continued their search on Thursday for a man who was apparently shot in the eastern Dutch town the night before.
People heard a "bang" on the Pietersbergseweg on Wednesday evening. A short time later other witnesses saw a man sitting in a car with a cloth pressed to his head. The cloth had red stains on it.
At the same time someone else rang for an ambulance because a person had been shot. But when the ambulance arrived the supposed victim was nowhere to be found.
This bears a resemblance to a bizarre incident in the Osdorp district of Amsterdam on Wednesday morning. A 24-year-old Amsterdam man was seriously wounded in a shooting but when an ambulance arrived there was no sign of him.
Bystanders told the police that another man had lifted the victim and driven him away in a car.
Almost simultaneously, the police received a message that the car had collided with another vehicle on the Tussen Meer street in Osdorp. Police arriving at the scene found the victim lying near the car. He was admitted to hospital, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds sustained in the first incident.
There was nobody else in the car when the police arrived.
