A DUST-UP between two warring circus clans left six people wounded, police said overnight, after confiscating guns and other weapons from the performers. Police said it was unclear what sparked the melee yesterday between the two families, who were each camped on the eastern fringe of southern German city of Regensburg.
Neighbours reported hearing shots and police arrived to find a 48-year-old with a bullet wound in his leg and another five people between the ages of 17 and 55 with minor to moderate injuries.
Each of the families claimed three victims.
"It is still a complete mystery what led to the massive run-in between the two families from the circus scene," police said.
Authorities seized three guns, several knives and batons as well as banned implements such as brass knuckles.
