  • [01] Manhunt for perpetrator of two shooting injuries

    Attica police launched a manhunt on Monday night for the location and arrest of a man believed to be the perpetrator of shooting injuries in two incidents earlier in the evening in the greater Athens area.

    In the first incident, a young Bulgarian man riding a bicycle in the Votanikos district was shot in the right wrist at 7:20 p.m., and was taken to hospital for first aid.

    The youth told police that he had seen a black jeep approaching and heard the gunshot, but had no idea why he was shot.

    Less than half an hour later, at 8:04 p.m., a 57-year-old Greek man was taken to hospital with a bullet in the abdomen. Police said the man had been walking on a street in the Moschato district, near Piraeus, when he was shot, but had not seen the perpetrator. Footage from surveillance cameras in the area at the time the man was shot showed a black jeep like the one described by the Bulgarian man.

    The motive of the two attacks was still unknown on Tuesday morning, as there is no link between the two victims.

    [02] New deputy interior minister appointed

    George Dolios, deputy for Evros, was on Monday appointed deputy interior minister by decision of Prime Minister George Papandreou.

    Dolios is replacing Dinos Rovlias who resigned ten days ago.

    [03] Police injured in shootout

    Two policemen were shot and injured on Monday by a pair of bank robbers that had just hit a branch of the National Bank of Greece on the island of Salamina and were trying to get away. The incident occurred at 15:10 on Monday afternoon.

    The two police officers were the crew of a Salamina police patrol car that had responded to a call that a robbery was underway at the bank. One was shot in the leg and the second was injured in the head.

    The two injured police officers were transported to a hospital in Piraeus and police have launched a manhunt to locate and arrest the bank robbers.
