Police investigating the gunman who killed at least four people in Liege on Tuesday have reportedly found a body at his home. It’s not clear how the dead woman is related to Nordine Amrani, who is believed to have been responsible for killing four people and injuring more than 100 during his rampage yesterday.
It’s believed that Nordine Amrani left his home in Liege on Tuesday morning with a backpack that contained hand grenades, a revolver and an FAL assault rifle. He headed to Place Saint Lambert in the centre of town and began attacking shoppers with grenades before opening fire.
There were initial concerns that Amrani’s attack was an act of terrorism, possibly carried out in response to the Anders Behring Breivik attacks in Oslo, Norway earlier this year. But Belgian police now say that Amrani’s actions were unconnected and were an isolated incident of violence by a man who was said to have a keen interest in guns.
