When a police patrol met the suspects during the night, one of the two threatened the officers with a gun. A police officer fired a warning shot and the men fled.
With a large-scale manhunt, the police in downtown Coburg were looking for two apparently armed men – a helicopter was also in action. A police patrol met the two men that night. One of the two threatened the officers with a gun, whereupon a police officer fired a warning shot. The men fled.
The officers initially did not catch the men, who are said to be in their early to mid-20s. Callers had previously reported a mass brawl in front of a restaurant on Brunngasse. On site, the officials met a group of 20 people – but they could not find a fight.
According to the group, two armed men walked away from the group. The police are now looking for witnesses to the alleged mass brawl and are asking for information about the two men.
