Mannheim (Baden-Württemberg) – Just eight days ago, a 47-year-old died during an identity check in Mannheim. Now there was another deadly police operation in the Baden metropolis!
This is known so far: In the morning, a woman from the Waldhof district called the police with an emergency call. Reason: Your neighbor (55) had a violent argument with her son (31), so she asked for help.
31-year-old threatened to kill himself
When the officers arrived at the scene of the crime on Wachtstrasse, they had to force the door open. In the apartment they met the 31-year-old – with bloodstained hands, his mother completely scared! LKA spokesman David Fritsch to BILD: “The 31-year-old had a knife in his hand, threatened to kill himself and stabbed himself in the neck.”
The officers managed to get the mother out of the danger area. The man is said to have injured himself even more violently with the knife.
The LKA spokesman: “The colleagues used pepper spray, tried to calm the man down, but he kept injuring himself with the knife. At which point one of the officers fired an aimed shot at his leg.”
Stuttgart LKA determined
Shortly thereafter, an ambulance arrived and tried in vain to reanimate the seriously injured. The exact cause of death and how the shot was fired is currently being determined by the Stuttgart State Criminal Police Office.
