Po­lice were seek­ing two men in con­nec­tion with a deadly drive-by shoot­ing at Vathis Square in cen­tral Athens early yes­ter­day. A 44-year-old Greek man was killed in the at­tack and an Al­ba­nian woman was in­jured. Wit­nesses told in­ves­ti­ga­tors that a dark-col­ored SUV with smoked glass win­dows pulled up in front of a cafe and a gun­man opened fire on the es­tab­lish­ment with a large-cal­iber weapon, pos­si­bly a Kalash­nikov as­sault ri­fle, killing the 44-year-old who was stand­ing out­side and the in­jur­ing the woman inside. The ve­hi­cle drove off at high speed and was later iden­ti­fied from its li­cense plate num­ber as be­long­ing to an Al­ba­nian na­tional.
