Late this afternoon there was a sudden shot on one of the beaches on the Nieuwe Meer, in the southwest of the city, not far from the Amsterdamse Bos. The police cannot or will not say anything about the cause of the shooting, and nothing has been said about the nature of the injuries.
The shooter is still at large. The police have distributed his description. It concerns a man with a goatee, a hat and a purse and blue swimming trunks.
Anyone who sees him walking is advised not to approach the man himself but to call 112, the Amsterdam police reported on Twitter.
