Athens factory robbers shoot, injure 2 employees
Four armed robbers shot and injured two employees at a cold cuts factory in Kifissia, northern Athens, on Wednesday before opening fire on members of the Greek Police’s DIAS motorcycle unit whom they encountered on a side street off the national highway during their getaway in a car.
After launching a manhunt, police found a burnt BMW, which they suspect the perpetrators used to make their escape, and are looking for a silver Audi, which they believe to be a second getaway car.
The two employees received treatment in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
According to reports, the gunmen were most likely armed with Kalashnikovs.
It was not clear if they managed to take anything from the factory.
