Police and rescuers immediately arrived at the scene, but paramedics were unable to resuscitate the former athlete. He died on the spot from his injuries. Part of the city center was cordoned off, but the criminals managed to escape.

"I was sitting in a cafe called De Lorenzo Gelateria Italiana. It's right next door. Then I also heard shots. Then the police surrounded everything. In any case, it's bad that the criminals (there were at least two of them, they ran past the ice cream parlor) are still at large. And what's worse is that it's happening in my beautiful old town," Bild quotes an eyewitness as saying.
