Police shoots woman who stabbed two others with a knife in Ghent


The Ghent working-class neighborhood of Brugse Poort was startled this afternoon by a stab incident. A woman – at first there was a man – stabbed two other men with a knife. The Ghent police came to the scene and shot the suspect in her hand.

Eyewitness images show how a number of officers then overpowered the woman, while the two injured men she was dealing with were still walking around. The woman who was shot was then taken to the hospital.

For the time being, it is unclear why the three of them got into conflict with each other. The public prosecutor’s office has started an investigation into the stab incident and police action.
