‘Gang enforcer’ murdered in ‘mafia-style’ execution

Police have launched an investigation after a man, reported to be a gas station owner, was gunned down in his business on Saturday.

The incident happened at around 8 a.m. in the eastern Athens suburb of Gerakas.

At least three people are believed to have committed the killing, which has been described as a ‘mafia-style’ execution. More than 20 bullet casings were retrieved from the scene.

The perpetrators arrived at the gas station in a white van, got out, shot the 38-year-old man and escaped.

The white van was found burned, not far from the scene of the crime.

The victim was known to the police as an enforcer for a gang that ran an extortion racket.
