BERLIN — Officials shut down a large funfair in western Germany on Sunday after a man was stabbed to death on a carousel.

Police said the 31-year-old victim and another man got into a fight while riding a carousel at the fair in Münster, a city of around 300,000, on Saturday evening.

During the altercation, the suspect stabbed the victim with a knife. Despite attempts to resuscitate him, the victim died on the scene.

According to police, the two men did not know each other beforehand.

Police are still searching for the suspect and another man who was with him at the time of the attack, both of whom fled.

Sunday was slated to be the final day of the fair, but city officials chose to end it early “out of respect for the victim,” Markus Lewe, Münster’s mayor, said in a statement.

The fair, known as the Send, is held three times a year in Münster. According to the organizers’ website, it draws up to a million visitors annually.
