Bouncer shot after denying entry to Prenzlauer Berg club
During the fight, the club-goer received injuries to his face, before he pulled out a gun and shot the bouncer
“Heute, leider nicht…” Being denied entry to a club is almost a rite of passage in Berlin but some people, it seems, just aren’t ready to take no for an answer. Early on Sunday morning, a bouncer at a club on Schönhauser Allee in Prenzlauer Berg was shot and injured after denying entry to a club-goer.
According to reports, a fight broke out after the man was turned down at the door. During the fight, the 32-year-old club-goer received injuries to his face, before he pulled out a gun and shot the bouncer in the shin. The suspect was arrested, while the bouncer was rushed to hospital for treatment.

And it seems like the heat is bringing out the worst in people. Not too far away in Lichtenberg, a similar incident took place. A 41-year old man was shot several times in the leg by an unidentified suspect who then fled the scene. While the crimes were initially thought to be linked, police have since declared the incidents to be unconnected.
