Attempted murder charge after shots fired

Thu, 2017-06-22 07:28

A man was arrested early on Thursday after firing shots and insulting police officers in Trimiklini, Limassol.

The 42-year-old, who had reportedly consumed a large amount of alcohol, started firing shots with a gun in a residential area during the night.

When police were called to the scene at 9.30pm on Wednesday he refused to surrender, swore at the officers and attempted to shoot one of them without success. At one point he hid behind a church, police said.

The officer responded by firing two warning shots.

He then managed to escape but was arrested later, at 1.15am, at his house after negotiations with the anti-riot squad.

The man is being charged for attempted murder.
