An announcement was published by the Attica General Police Directorate regarding the recent incident of persecution and shootings in the area of ​​Perama.

According to the announcement, late on Friday, October 22, 2021 a Police Motorcycle Unit (DI.AS) located a vehicle in the area of ​​Ag. I. Renti, with three passengers and a broken windscreen (something that may be related to burglary), a reason for which it was considered suspicious. Thus, the Police Unit decided to conduct a police investigation.

By order of the Immediate Action Centre, other reinforcing forces rushed to the scene to carry out the investigation, but the vehicle accelerated and escaped.

As part of the investigation, the car was later located in the area of ​​Egaleo and the police followed it to the area of ​​Perama, where it was stopped by a moving vehicle (bus).

In their attempt to escape, the perpetrators reversed and rammed five motorcycles of the DI.AS Unit, injuring a total of seven police officers.

The police used a weapon to stop the vehicle, resulting in the fatal injury of the driver and the injury of one of the passengers, who was taken to hospital and is currently being treated. The latter is not in danger.

The third person in the vehicle escaped and is currently wanted.

A medical examiner and a team from the Directorate of Crime Investigations were called to the scene.

As it turned out, the vehicle had been stolen a little earlier from the area of ​​Ag. I. Renti.

Preliminary investigation is carried out by the Department of Crimes against Life and Personal Freedom of the Attica Security Directorate in the presence of a competent Prosecutor.
