At least 3 dead in shooting near Jewish Museum in Brussels

Brussels Shooting 

Three people were killed in a shooting near the Jewish Museum in Brussels, which the Belgian authorities believe may be “an anti-Semitic terrorist act.”

Two women and a man died on site as the gunman opened fire at a group of people in front of the Jewish Museum in the central Sablon area, Belgian broadcaster RTBF said.

Another person was seriously injured in the attack, the emergency services said.

According to RTBF, the shooting broke out at about 3:50pm local time and took place inside as well as outside the museum.

The manhunt is currently underway as the gunman fled in a car, Het Laatste Nieuws website reports.
Witnesses were able to write down the license plate of the vehicle which the perpetrator used for escape, De Standaard reports.

The attack was also captured by the surveillance cameras, the paper added.

According to Le Soir newspaper, 12 people were treated for shock immediately after the incident.

"I am shocked by the murders committed at the Jewish Museum, I am thinking of the victims. I saw there and their families," Reynders tweeted.

 As she was heading to the scene, Belgian Interior Minister Joëlle Milquet said that the attack was “most likely an anti-Semitic terrorist act.”


Belgian Prime Minister, Elio Di Rupo, expressed his condolences and support for the families of those, who died.
