The fourth victim of last month's shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels died in a hospital on Friday, according to AFP.

The death of Alexandre Strens, 24, who was working as a receptionist at the museum at the time of the attack, was announced by Eric Van der Sypt, spokesman for Belgium’s federal prosecutor’s office.

His death brings death toll in the attack to four. Also killed were Israeli couple Emanuel and Mira Riva and Dominique Chabrier, a French volunteer at the museum.

Strens had been in a state of brain death since the shooting, according to reports.

Mehdi Nemmouche, 29, a French-Algerian man who is believed to have traveled to Syria to fight with Islamist militants, has been arrested as a suspect in the attack.
