A man is shot dead after an altercation at a restaurant escalates. Only a little later there are two injured in an argument. The background is still unclear.
Stade – A 23-year-old man was fatally injured by gunshots in Stade in Lower Saxony. In addition, two men were injured late in the evening, one of them also by shots, said a police spokesman. Several media had previously reported.
Accordingly, there was a dispute between several people in a restaurant. The dispute then moved to the outside of the restaurant, the spokesman said. The alerted emergency services found the 23-year-old outside with serious gunshot wounds. He was resuscitated but died shortly afterwards.
Shortly thereafter, another argument broke out between three men in front of a house not far from the restaurant. A 28-year-old was seriously injured in the head, it said. Behind the house, the emergency services found a 39-year-old man with serious injuries. He also had gunshot wounds. Both men are not in mortal danger.
A firearm was found in the stairwell of the building, the police spokesman said. Whether it is the murder weapon will be checked. All four people involved have been arrested. It is still being determined how the crimes are connected. dpa
