Troublemaker arrested over shooting incident

A 50-year-old man was remanded for six days by the Limassol district court on Saturday in connection with shots fired with a shotgun outside a coffee-shop in Kato Polemidia, Limassol.

According to a police report, prior to the shooting incident the 50-year-old had been causing a disturbance and breaking glasses at the coffee-shop, leading the owner to take him outside and ask him to leave.

The 50-year-old returned to the coffee-shop in his car three times, but each time was turned away by the owner before even getting off his car.

At around 1:30am, the man returned to the coffee-shop a fourth time, this time seen sitting in the passenger seat of the car and shooting twice in the air with a shotgun.

Fleeing the scene, the car crashed into another car and the driver appears to have fled on foot.

After the incident was reported to police, the 50-year-old was arrested and police seized evidence following a search of his home, other establishments and cars, although the shotgun and the vehicle’s driver were not found.

Denying any involvement, the 50-year-old was brought before the Limassol district court on Saturday, which approved investigators’ request for his six-day remand.
