Po­lice link to bar shot by gun­man

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

At least three serv­ing po­lice­men are thought to have been work­ing at the bar in Mikroli­mano, Pi­raeus, where a 31-year-old man opened fire with an AK-47 early on Satur­day, re­sult­ing in 15 peo­ple be­ing in­jured.

Sources said that two for­mer po­lice­men who have been linked in the past to pros­ti­tu­tion rings are thought to be in­volved in some way in the own­er­ship of the es­tab­lish­ment. This has not been con­firmed, though, by the po­lice. It is ex­pected that the po­lice’s in­ter­nal af­fairs depart­ment will in­ves­ti­gate the mat­ter fur­ther, par­tic­u­larly the sus­pi­cions that po­lice­men were work­ing at the bar.

The force’s pri­or­ity, how­ever, is to catch the Al­ba­nian na­tional sus­pected of car­ry­ing out the shoot­ing.

It emerged yes­ter­day that he had been stay­ing since Thurs­day night in a ho­tel op­po­site the bar. Po­lice searched the room he had rented and found an AK-47 mag­a­zine.
