Dutch Police Open Fire on 16-Year-Old Farm Boy

The police arrested three people during the farmers' protest. They are suspected of attempted manslaughter, the Public Prosecution Service (OM) announced on Wednesday.

The three suspects include a 46-year-old man from Opsterland, and two Heerenveen males aged 34 and 16. All three were still in custody Wednesday afternoon.

The suspects were arrested after a police action in which targeted shots were fired. Images of the incident are circulating on social media, including the bullet hole. A video shows that officers appear to be on the road with guns drawn.

The use of a firearm was being examined by the Rijksrecherche, the national investigative service that handles investigations at government services like the police.

Meanwhile, the Fryslân police also called on people to stop sharing sensitive information about police officers on social media, including those who were involved in the shooting incident in Heerenveen.
