A shooting took place at Steinplatz in Hagen, Germany. The incident began as a dispute near a playground, which escalated when a weapon was brandished. Witnesses reported hearing around five gunshots, and two individuals were injured, one of whom is in critical condition.

The event occurred on Saturday afternoon in Hagen, Germany. The initial quarrel involved a group of men near the playground, which eventually led to one or possibly two individuals drawing a weapon.

The victims, both of whom are 40 years old, sustained injuries in the incident. German media sources report that one of the injured is in a highly critical condition.

Manhunt by German police continues

Two men fled from the scene. The police have initiated a manhunt for these suspects. One of the suspects is described as being between 25 and 30 years of age, slim with black hair and a beard. "He was dressed in a slightly long black jacket and light-colored shoes," as reported by a German daily.

The police are urging anyone with information about this event, or those who observed two individuals fleeing the area, to come forward and assist in their investigation.
