AMSTERDAM – The four men injured in a shooting in Enschede in the early hours of Sunday morning are not in any danger, the police announced on Monday.

Two of the victims were wounded in their lower leg. The other two had gunshot injuries to their groin and arm.

The police are still questioning the victims about the shooting. A 29-year-old man undergoing the last phase of his court-ordered psychiatric treatment as an outpatient reportedly opened fire on several people leaving night-life establishments early Sunday morning. A 44-year-old woman was killed.

The woman's husband told television station SBS6 on Sunday evening that he and his wife knew the shooter well. He said that the man had worked for him, and that his wife had been a great support and friend to the suspect. Things were not going so well between them recently however.

In the course of Sunday evening the police arrested another three people in connection with the shooting. All were Enschede residents between the ages of 17 and 18. The police could not give any further explanation on Monday as to why the man opened fire.
