An Egyptian prosecution ordered on Wednesday the four-day detention pending investigations of a judge who shot a man to death in Cairo's Nasr City district on Tuesday. 

According to the prosecution, the judge got into a fight with the victim, a graduate of the German University in Cairo, in front of the judge’s home in Nasr City. The judge reportedly drew a pistol and shot the victim, instantly killing him.

The judge then reportedly took the victim to the hospital in an attempt to save him, after which he turned himself in to the prosecution. 

According to investigators, the judge had seen the victim’s fiancée standing in front of his apartment building and questioned her presence in the area, after which he got into a fight with her fiancée, who arrived at the scene shortly after.

Egypt’s Supreme Judicial Council ordered on Wednesday the withdrawing of judicial immunity from the judge so he can be prosecuted.
