Po­lice shootout.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice in Athens early yes­ter­day ex­changed fire with a group of men be­lieved to be be­hind a string of safe rob­beries at in­dus­trial fa­cil­i­ties around At­tica and Vi­o­tia. The in­ci­dent oc­curred around 4.30 a.m. as of­fi­cers of the crime preven­tion unit (OPKE) tried to ques­tion the pas­sen­gers of a car in Ano Liosia, north­ern Athens, fol­low­ing an at­tempted break-in at the premises of a phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pany. It was not clear how many peo­ple were in the ve­hi­cle, which bore the com­pany’s logo, but po­lice said they came out of the car shoot­ing and ran off be­fore they could be ap­pre­hended. In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve the would-be safe rob­bers to be part of the same gang re­spon­si­ble for a spate of sim­i­lar break-ins at in­dus­trial and stor­age fa­cil­i­ties around the cap­i­tal and in the neigh­bor­ing pre­fec­ture of Vi­o­tia.
