After a fatal confrontation in Düsseldorf's old town, the victim (19) is to be autopsied on Wednesday.

The public prosecutor announced this on request.

The young man was attacked on Saturday night with a broken bottle and seriously injured.

He died in the clinic on Tuesday afternoon.

The public prosecutor's office is investigating manslaughter.

According to the police, there is currently no trace of the perpetrator.

According to the public prosecutor's office, the crime scene at the famous Düsseldorf castle tower was outside the police video surveillance in the old town.

After a major brawl between two groups, witnesses reported the injured man.

According to the police, the perpetrator fled in an unknown direction.

A homicide squad named “Schlossufer” is investigating and looking for witnesses.

Düsseldorf's Lord Mayor Stephan Keller (CDU) expressed his dismay at the incident on Wednesday: “I am stunned by this act of violence that led to the death of a young person.

My condolences and thoughts go to the relatives and friends of the deceased in this difficult hour. "

Less than 48 hours before the bloody confrontation, Keller presented a new security concept for the old town at a press conference not far from the crime scene.

Among other things, the Rhine promenade should be better lit after fights had repeatedly broken out there on weekends.

The police recently stepped up video surveillance in the old town and put more cameras into operation.

Düsseldorf's old town, also known as the “longest bar in the world” because of its many bars, is a magnet for thousands of people on weekends.

Most of the shops have now reopened, and access to discos is still restricted due to the pandemic.
