Oberhausen/Gelsenkirchen – A 40-year-old man has been arrested after three people were shot outside a fast-food restaurant in Oberhausen. He is said to have been present at the act on Saturday evening, but did not shoot, as prosecutors and police announced on Sunday. He is currently in police custody.

The emergency services would not have found him. According to the investigators’ press release, the provisionally arrested 40-year-old is also a Turk. dpa
