In Lüdenscheid in North Rhine-Westphalia there was a fatal incident at a fair on Saturday evening. After an argument, shots were fired, and a 40-year-old was injured. He later died in hospital. The perpetrators between 16 and 20 years have fled.

A 40-year-old was shot and killed at a fair in Lüdenscheid in the north-west of the Sauerland. The man was hit by the projectile at the exit of the festival site on Saturday evening and died a little later from his serious injuries in a hospital, police and prosecutors said on Sunday.

Previously, there had been a physical altercation between a 16-year-old and a group of six. When the youth and his father wanted to confront the group, they all fled.

During the escape, two people fired shots from a blank gun and a live gun. Shots were fired both in the air and in the direction of the 16-year-old and 52-year-old father who was pursuing them.

A 40-year-old Gummersbacher, who was also at the exit of the fair, was hit by a projectile. He later died in hospital from his injuries. Police and prosecutors are now looking for information about the young men, who are estimated to be between 16 and 20 years old.

A father from NRW lost his driver’s license. The reason is excessive speed. The special thing about the story: The 32-year-old drove his unconscious daughter to a clinic and was even escorted by the police.
