Two men (16 and 21) from Upper Franconia apparently wanted to buy drugs in Munich.
They meet three strangers and a fight ensues.
The 21-year-old dies.
Munich – Not much is known about the incident that took place early on Saturday evening (August 6) in Riemer Park.
It is clear that a 21-year-old did not survive the weekend.
The police assume that the two men from Upper Franconia (Coburg district) came to Munich to buy drugs.
They met three previously unknown men at the Messestadt Ost subway station.

All five men then go to the nearby Riemer Park green space.
"The 21-year-old and one of the previously unknown men left the group of people and, according to the current state of knowledge, went to a nearby residential property," the police said on Monday.
Then there was an argument.
At around 5:25 p.m., the 21-year-old from Upper Franconia returned to his 16-year-old friend.
There he collapsed.
A local resident informed the fire brigade and police.
The 21-year-old suffered life-threatening injuries.
He succumbed to his severe injuries in hospital on Sunday (August 7).
The suspect and his two companions fled and could not be found despite a police search with 15 strips.
