Man, 26, arrested in quadruple murder investigation

SINT MAARTEN/THE NETHERLANDS – A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the mass shooting earlier this week which left four people dead in Enschede, police say.

The man was arrested near Dordrecht on Tuesday evening, a couple of hours after the bodies were found. A second man who was arrested with him has since been released.

The man will appear in court later today for a remand hearing. The four men were found dead in a commercial property in Enschede which, according to chamber of commerce information, was home to a company selling equipment for growing plants on Tuesday afternoon.

All four had been shot dead. It later emerged that two of the victims were being investigated by police in connection with the seizure of 17 kilos of marijuana on the premises this summer.

One of the men, since identified by the AD as 61-year-old Max Klaasse, was sales rep for a plant feed company who was ‘in the wrong place at the wrong time’, the paper said. (DutchNews)
