No charges after suspect shoots himself

The police officers involved in the arrest of a man who later shot himself in the head at a police station in Haarlem will not be prosecuted, reports ANP news service on Tuesday.

‘There were mistakes made when he was searched but we do not believe these merit prosecution,’ a spokesman for the public prosecution said.
The suspect, a 41-year-old man from Haarlem was arrested after a break in at a coffee shop in April.
