A 22-year-old was fatally injured in a dispute between several men in Cologne. As the police and prosecutors announced on Wednesday, a homicide commission was investigating.

The police were deployed with more than 20 patrol cars. The search for the suspect was still ongoing in the evening. During the argument in the early evening in Cologne-Ostheim, the man was so badly injured by a stab in the upper body that he later died in the hospital. The police initially did not specify how many people were involved in the altercation.

Because of the numerous interrogations and ongoing manhunt, further information cannot be expected before Thursday.
