Ten “potential offenders” were arrested near the crime scene. According to the police, these could be both suspects and witnesses.Also the reason for the deadly dispute is not yet known. Possibly the conflict had its start in a pub where the men had met before.According to previous findings, the men do not come from Cologne and also do not belong to the drug scene known here, which has been running at Ebertplatz square for years.A 20-man homicide squad is now investigating the background to the blood crime.
