Anger at his ex-wife was the motive of a 32-year-old: He shot at her new lover and his father, who was injured. In court, the defendant apologized and made a confession.
Munich - Shots in the residential area: Out of fear, residents of Berg am Laim called the police when it suddenly banged dangerously in the courtyard. Since yesterday, the Munich I Regional Court has been dealing with the case of attempted manslaughter, which occurred on November 17, 2022.
At that time, Dino S. (32) had driven to his ex-wife's lover in a rage and wanted to confront him. But not with words, rather the defendant, according to the prosecutor's office, had a semi-automatic handgun of the type Beretta 85 with him - assuming that he would meet the woman who had left him on the spot.

According to the indictment, Dino S. first pointed the gun at the man's father and shouted: "Send your son out. We're going to sort that out now." Later, he is also said to have threatened: "I'll kill you all." According to the indictment, shots were even fired at father and son in the scramble. A grazing shot injured the father in the left shoulder - in court, he showed his scar to a doctor.
The police later found projectiles in the kitchen, where Dino S. is said to have previously shot unaimedly. According to the public prosecutor's office, he accepted the potentially fatal consequences. In the criminal trial, Dino S. apologized yesterday and said: "I regret what I did."
