A group of young people is said to have attacked two men in Magdeburg in Saxony-Anhalt, one of whom died. The victim died from life-threatening injuries, police said on Wednesday.

Accordingly, the crime occurred in front of a kiosk on Friday night. For an unknown reason, an argument broke out between the men and the 14 to 16-year-olds. The 30 and 33 year old men were suddenly attacked. They were able to escape and call emergency services, but both had to be taken to a hospital. At the clinic, doctors diagnosed the 33-year-old with life-threatening injuries.

The police then investigated an attempted homicide. The 33-year-old ultimately succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday. An autopsy will determine the exact cause of death. Two 14-year-olds and a 16-year-old are considered suspects. They have already been questioned several times. In addition, an application for detention was made against a young person, which the judge did not accept. “The evaluation of a video is also part of the ongoing investigation,” a police spokesman told the “Volksstimme”.
