ATHENS – A 40-year-old petrol station owner in the Athens area of Gerakas was shot dead on Saturday, the Hellenic Police reported.
A group of three or four unknown individuals, police said, were waiting for the man to arrive at and open the petrol station before shooting him down shortly before 08:00 on Saturday morning.
More than 40 bullet shells were recovered by police at the scene of the homicide. A burnt van was later found by police at the neighboring area of Pallini, which is thought to have been the get-away vehicle.
The Attica Police Security Directorate is investigating the killing.
