Alleged accomplice of gunman Bako arrested in Athens

A 32-year-old Polish man believed to be an accomplice of Arber Bako, who was arrested last week for opening fire at a bar with an AK-47, has been arrested.

Police said that the suspect was caught at an apartment in Maroussi, northern Athens, on Sunday. He is one of 10 people believed to be part of Bako’s gang. Two more were arrested last week.

A police diver also recovered Monday a Kalashnikov assault rifle at the port of Piraeus. Tests are being carried out to ascertain if it is the weapon used by Bako in his attack, which led to more than 10 injuries but no deaths.
