Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The gun that was used in the mur­der of a 52year-old taxi driver in Ki­fis­sia, north­ern Athens, on Tues­day night was the same as that used in a mur­der at­tempt on an­other driver last month, po­lice said yesterday. Bal­lis­tic tests on a bul­let cas­ing found in the cab of the driver who was shot in the head, re­vealed that the weapon was a retro­fit­ted 22-cal­iber pis­tol, the same used in last month’s at­tack on a 32-year-old cabbie, also in Ki­fis­sia. That driver sur­vived and told po­lice that the as­sailant looked around 30 years old. He also said in his de­po­si­tion that the sus­pect got into his taxi in the north­ern sub­urb of Nea Ery­thraia and that he be­gan to feel a burn­ing sen­sa­tion in his head as they ap­proached Ki­fis­sia. His ve­hi­cle stopped af­ter he asked the sus­pect to pull the hand­brake as he was about to faint. The sus­pect then snatched the car keys and fled.
