Arrest warrant issued after shots fired in Limassol

An arrest warrant was issued on Tuesday afternoon against a man after shots were fired at a Limassol residence on the previous evening.

According to police, the wanted man, 38, has in the past been involved in the abduction and beating of the 27-year-old man whose home was targeted.

Two people are still wanted in connection with the earlier case while one is in prison.

Monday’s shooting took place in a residential area at 7.55pm.

When police officers arrived at the scene they found the shots had been aimed at the house of the 27-year-old man, who was not at home at the time.

The front entrance, the façade of the house and a TV in the living room were damaged by the shots.

Witnesses say they were fired from the front seat of a dark Nissan March without number plates.

The home owner, who was briefed about the incident by the officers, has repeatedly been in trouble with police before.
