On Saturday night, the police discovered the body of a man in Kaltenkirchen, Schleswig-Holstein. The dead man, who was found near the leisure pool parking lot, had a gunshot wound.

Now the identity of the victim has been determined. According to the police, it is a 27-year-old Albanian who, according to current knowledge, had no fixed address and was already known to the police.

Suspect is only 17

After indications of "a crime in Uetersen in the district of Pinneberg", the Itzehoe criminal police had taken over the investigation and arrested a 17-year-old suspect.

On Sunday, at the request of the public prosecutor's office, the Itzehoe district court had issued an arrest warrant against the teenager on the urgent suspicion of manslaughter.

The police did not provide any further information, citing the ongoing investigations and the personal rights of the juvenile accused.
