The motorcyclist who entered the store of a petrol station in Elst on Tuesday morning died of his injuries. The criminal investigation has now been completed, the police confirmed to NU.nl after reporting The Gelderlander.
Just before the man entered the store, a fire alarm also came from his home in Huissen.
The emergency services have found ignition mechanisms in his house. Ultimately, the Explosives Ordnance Disposal Service (EOD) had to be called in to get the area safe again.
The police are still investigating the background to the fire and the entering of the gas station.
