Horst Schroder,DKiG Holder

Is there anymore information about Oberleutnant Horst Schroder who was Staffelkaptian of 6/SG-3 and had eleven air-to-air victories to his credit. He was awarded the German Cross in Gold. I may have spelled his last name wrong. How many combat sorties did he completed before he was killed in an plane crash on Jan. 24,1945?
