According to police, a seriously injured student from Germany was found by emergency services in an apartment in Seitenberggasse in Vienna's 16th district. He had fatal head injuries, according to a report from the Austrian News Agency (APA).
Police responded when a neighbour called them about a heated argument which sounded like it was getting out of hand. When police arrived, they broke down the door of the flat.
Unfortunately, the man succumbed to his injuries on the scene. A suspect was arrested shortly afterwards at the apartment, he was found sitting in another room.
According to police, he has already confessed to the murder, although the reason for the argument has not yet been given.
