Rifle used in Piraeus shooting not connected to previous attacks

A Kalashnikov assault rifle used in a shooting at a bar in Piraeus early on Saturday is not connected to any previous attacks, police experts said on Monday following ballistics tests on bullet casings gathered from the scene.

A photograph of the suspect, described as an Albanian man in his 30s, is expected to be made available by authorities on Tuesday.

Police believe the suspect has been involved in three similar incidents in the past, resulting in one death and several injuries.

Four of the 15 people injured in the attack in the Mikrolimano district of Piraeus were still in hospital on Monday and said to be in stable condition.
