C 405

An unknown man was able to escape to the West at Brunnenstraße on July 24, 1984. He used a ladder to climb over the inner wall. When he cut through the signal fence he set off an alarm.

The border guard on the watch­ tower at Schönholzer Straße fired a warning shot before shooting at the fleeing man. The shot missed him and the man was able to get over the border wall uninjured.
