Amsterdam – A 15-year-old boy was severely injured in a street shooting in the early hours of Thursday in Amsterdam.

An argument broke out on a street in the southeast of the Dutch capital and an unidentified gunman fired a number of times at the car in which the victim was a passenger, according to police reports.
 
The motive for the shooting is unclear – including whether the boy was shot deliberately – and the perpetrator has yet to be apprehended.
 
Amsterdam Southeast is regularly disturbed by the sounds of gun shots; last night's was the twelfth incident in three months. Local TV station AT5 has speculated there may be a drugs war underway in the area.
