Man with weapon protectionA Belgian gas station operator was acquitted by the court after he shot a gun during a burglary. The man lives above the gas station and woke up from the burglary. He grabbed his gun and fired some warning shots. He then shot at the tires of the flight vehicle.

The 65-year-old man operates a Q8 gas station in the center of Opitter. He has now been acquitted by the correctional judge of Tongeren for the release of warning shots when his gas station was raided.

The manager, who lives with his wife above the gas station, woke up, but did not dare to go down. To protect himself and out of panic, he shot his gun in the air. A moment later he shot at the tires of the flight vehicle.

The latter turned out to be sufficient for the Public Prosecution Service to summon the man. At the hearing, the judge already expressed understanding for the reaction of the sixties. This was also evident from the judgment, reports

The defendant was acquitted and the judge was of the opinion that the man did not shoot in a targeted manner and only acted to defend himself and his wife.
