A 49-year-old Russian citizen from Chechnya was arrested in Berlin, police announced on Sunday, in relation to a murder which happened in the German capital's Moabit neighbourhood on Friday.
The murder was committed in a park called Kleiner Tiergarten.
Footage from Sunday shows pale traces of blood at the crime scene, along with torn police tapes which were used to seal off the area during the investigation.
A Glock handgun, a wig and a bicycle were later retrieved by police divers from the nearby Spree river.
The victim, identified as the 41-year old Zelimkhan K., was a veteran of the Second Chechen War, who in recent years was part of an Georgian unit.
