Beach party shooting: five police suspects

Five police officers have been identified as possible suspects in the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old youth at a beach party at Hoek van Holland last month, news agency ANP reports.

All five fired their weapons but their exact role in the incident, in which six people were also injured, is not yet clear. The youth was killed by a police bullet but the public prosecution department would not say on Tuesday if any officers would face criminal charges.
Six festival goers are also being investigated, the department was quoted as saying.
Police unions have called on justice ministry officials to focus more on the troublemakers.
