Update: Ex-Ajax star, Jerge Hoefdraad is in critical condition and not dead after being shot in the head at a party



Former Ajax footballer, Jerge Hoefdraad is critically injured in the hospital and not dead as police wrongly reported after he was shot in the head at a party in Amsterdam-Zuidoost.



The 35-year old was trying to break up an argument at a party on Sunday, August 1, when he was shot, according to his former club.



It was subsequently reported that Hoefdraad, 35, had lost his life, only for police to retract that statement and confirm he was in critical condition.



The updated statement reads: “To our regret, the message was incorrectly reported this afternoon of the death of the 35-year-old victim of the shooting incident on Stekkenbergweg.



“He is in a very critical condition in hospital. We deeply regret this and apologize to his family.”



A suspect has already been identified thanks to several witness statements, although the individual has yet to be arrested.Latest Post
