A man was fatally shot in the Brussels commune of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean on Friday evening, the Brussels prosecutor’s office announced.

The man - a 38-year-old Albanian according to Het Laatste Nieuws - was struck by several bullets and died on the spot, Bruzz reports.

The shooting occurred around 7:00 PM near Avenue Louis Mettewie, a long street which crosses the commune.

Local police set up a safety perimeter and the federal police's judicial lab arrived on site, as did a law doctor and a ballistics expert.

The Public Prosecutor's Office has indicated that it will not communicate further until this Saturday, later in the day, and if the investigating judge agrees, according to Bx1.
