Police special guard shot in Petralona, investigation launched
Greek authorities have launched an investigation into the shooting and injury of a 32-year-old police special guard in Petralona early on Monday morning, including the possibility that a personal dispute is involved.
The special guard, who is currently serving at a police station in Keratea, was off duty at the time of the attack. He was fired upon by an unidentified individual and injured in the left thigh while walking down pedestrianised Voutadon Road in Petralona. Police sources said his attacker first asked the guard’s name and then pulled out a gun and shot him.
The victim was taken to the 401 Military Hospital and is considered out of danger.
The investigation is being carried out by the Attica Security Police Crimes Against Life department.
