Three Somalian nationals were shot and one killed on Saturday in Delft when they were accosted by three armed suspects who demanded entry by opening the shop's burglar gate, which was locked from the inside. The Somalian inside heard the commotion and hid himself inside the shop, whilst the ones outside had no means of access.
