A man was shot and killed at a fair in North Rhine-Westphalia.

The 40-year-old was hit by the projectile at the exit of the festival site on Saturday evening and died a little later in a hospital from his serious injuries, police and prosecutors said.

Previously, there had been a "physical altercation" between a 16-year-old and a group of six young men.

When the teenager and his 52-year-old father met the group again a little later, they fled.

According to the information, two of the fugitives fired shots from a blank gun and from a live firearm.

The 40-year-old from Gummersbach, who was also at the exit of the fairgrounds, was hit by a projectile.

Police are asking for information

It is unclear whether the victim was involved in the altercation.

It is the subject of the investigation "how the groups of people relate to the deceased," according to the statement from the police and the public prosecutor's office.

Investigators are now looking for clues about the young men, who are believed to be between the ages of 16 and 20.

Witnesses are asked to contact the police in Hagen on 02331/986-2060 or on the emergency number 110.
