Shooting in Utrecht: Police on the look out for Black Pete

Edit: 18th of March, here’s the report about the shooting in Utrecht of today

Sadly, we’re not making up this piece of Zwarte Piet news

The police in Utrecht are looking for the suspect of a shooting. Witnesses told the police that “a possible suspect” was dressed as Zwarte Piet. So it seems that certain groups in society are right, Black Pete is a menace to society!

The shooting took place in the Rietstraat in the district of Ondiep. According to local residents, the victim was in a car. The driver would have been wounded at his arm.

A helicopter is used in the search for the perpetrator or perpetrators, that’s all the police spokesperson could tell the press. No word yet if they’re looking for a regular Black Pete or a ‘Chimney’ Piet.
