North Rhine-Westphalia: Shooting in Duisburg: 49 suspects, 4 injured

Duisburg (dpa / lnw) - A good two and a half months after the shootout between Hells Angels rockers and members of a Turkish-Lebanese clan in Duisburg, new details have become known. As can be seen from a response from the NRW state government to a small inquiry by the AfD parliamentary group in the state parliament on Wednesday, the Duisburg public prosecutor's office is currently investigating a total of 49 suspects after the shooting at the Altmarkt in Duisburg-Hamborn on May 4, 2022 - in particular for attempted murder , serious breach of the peace, dangerous bodily harm, damage to property and violations of the weapons law.

Up to 100 people were involved in the escalation in Duisburg. According to police, at least 19 shots were fired, injuring four people. 15 men arrested on the day of the crime were released the next day. A few days after the event, there were indications that the Hells Angels could have canceled their Duisburg charter. The information is based on a report by the chief public prosecutor in Duisburg to the Ministry of Justice and the Interior in North Rhine-Westphalia.

According to the current state of knowledge, it can be assumed that around 100 people had gathered around 8.40 p.m. on May 4th. All those involved came "from the rocker and clan milieu classified as organized and seriously criminal", who faced each other in two groups "in an aggressive basic attitude" on Hamborn's Altmarkt. The 49 suspects identified so far can mostly be assigned to the two groups. The meeting then escalated into physical altercations between the rivals.

The windows of a shop, which can be assigned to the extended family, were smashed or smashed out of the rocker group. Objects were also thrown into the shop at the people present there.

According to the report, four people are known to have been injured and have been treated in nearby hospitals. Investigators suspect that there were other injuries in both camps. Bullets also hit shops and a car parked in the market.

The exact reconstruction of the course of events, the identification of other people, both suspects and witnesses, as well as the background to the crime are still the subject of the ongoing extensive investigations.

Of the 49 accused so far, 22 are currently attributed to the Hells Angels. In the case of three people, assignment to one of the groups is still questionable. Accordingly, 24 belong to the extended family group. According to the state government, 30 of the 49 suspects already have criminal records, some of them several. In addition to Germans, nationals of other countries are among the accused. Turkish, Romanian, Lebanese, Moroccan, Iranian and Serbian-Montenegrin nationalities are mentioned in the report.
