Germany: Turk shoots down man in the street

A 34-year-old man was taken to hospital on this Monday morning after being fatally injured in an escalated dispute in the Flörsheim district of Keramag. Around 6:30 a.m., witnesses alerted the police and reported a dispute between two men in Liebigstrasse, in which a firearm was allegedly used. When the police officers arrived, a 54-year-old man was arrested without resistance and a loaded firearm was seized. According to initial findings, the 54-year-old suspect had waited for the 34-year-old man on the street, made use of his firearm after a brief argument and injured the injured person in a life-threatening manner. After emergency medical treatment at the scene of the crime, he had to be immediately taken to hospital. The criminal investigation department in Hofheim and the police records department of the Police Headquarters of West Hesse have taken over further investigations and assume a deliberate homicide. The suspect, of Turkish nationality, will initially be questioned at the police station in Hofheim and investigated by the police.
