Gunshots were fired at two buildings in Delft city center during the early hours of Tuesday morning. Whether anyone was injured is not clear.

The police responded to Molslaan and Beestenmarkt around 4:30 a.m., Omroep West reports. Bullet casings ere found in the street. The extent of the damage is also unclear. Police spokesperson Dick Goijert told the broadcaster that there are "several bullet holes" and that at least two buildings were hit.

Early in May shots were fired at coffeeshop The Future and tanning salon Sunstyle on Peperstraat. A week later The Future was again targeted, along with coffeeshop The Game on Breestraat, around the corner.

Goijert could not tell Omroep Brabant whether these incidents are connected. "We're doing neighborhood- and trace evidence investigations and speaking to witness. Hopefully that will bring more clarity", the police spokesperson said.

"Incidents such as these logically lead to feelings of unrest", Ronald den Hertolg, a team chief at the Delft police, said to the broadcaster. "Our community police officers are in close contact with the residents and entrepreneurs. Residents and visitors of the inner city are asked to be alert and to call [emergency number] 112 immediately in suspicious circumstances. We take this matter seriously."

The police arrested three suspects on Wednesday in connection with recent attacks in Delft. The three are suspected of involvement in a shooting on Peperstraat, hand grenades exploding on Peperstraat and Breestraat, and a shooting on Beestenmarkt. Two homes in the region were also searched, AD reports.

The suspects are currently in restricted custody and the police can therefore not release any more details about the investigation and arrests, a spokesperson for the police said to the newspaper.

Delft Mayor Marja van Bijsterveldt called the arrests "good news". "Police and Public Prosecutor continue their investigation. I am awaiting these developments and follow them with very great interest", she said.

On May 8th dozens of gunshots were fired on coffeeshop The Future and tanning salon Sunstyle on Peperstraat. On May 17th, The Future was again targeted in an attack. This time hand grenades were detonated at The Future, as well as at coffeeshop The Game on Breestraat. A passerby was injured. And on Tuesday shots were fired at two buildings - a catering facility and accessory shop Sisters - at Beestenmarkt on Molslaan.
