At least three people were killed in a shooting in central Brussels at the city’s Jewish museum on Saturday in what Belgian officials said could be an anti-Semitic attack.
Two women and one man were immediately reported dead, and another person was said to be seriously wounded in the attack. However, Belgian newspaper La Libre later reported the death toll at four.
A man has been arrested in connection with the deadly shooting at the museum, Belgium’s public prosecutor said, according to Belga news agency. Police are currently looking for a second suspect.
A spokesman for the Brussels fire brigade said the shooter drove up to the museum, went inside and fired shots. The shooter then fled the scene in his vehicle. An eye witness told Belgian TV station RTBF that at least six shots were fired.
“According to the information we have at the moment, it was a solitary shooter and it seems to have happened inside the museum,” Pierre Meys, Brussels fire brigade spokesman, told French channel BFM TV.
