Unknown assailants using ΑΚ-47 Kalashnikov rifles apparently fired against the a special unit of DIAS officers early on Wednesday (around 8:40 am) when the latter attempted to check their vehicle. Press reports said that the incident occurred on Kedrinou Street, which is located near the Greek police department’s headquarters (GADA), on Alexandras Avenue, in central Athens.
The reports said that immediately after the incident the suspects fled the scene in an unknown car. The automobile was later discovered by police on nearby Achaias Street.
The incident terrorized many witnesses at the scene who began running left and right for cover to escape the gunfire. Thankfully the officers were not injured.
According to defencenet, police officials have now launched a manhunt for these armed criminals in the areas of Ampelokipi and Gizi.
Quoting police officials, defencenet even said that the perpetrators might also be terrorists. For one, they were carrying heavy weaponry and secondly they were thirsty for bloodshed.
