A 27-year-old man was remanded for three days on Wednesday in connection with a shooting incident in Paphos.

He is suspected of trespassing into a 45-year-old man’s property in Yiolou, Paphos to try and steal his dogs while having his face covered, carrying a gun.

The older man shot at him twice, calling police himself to tell them what happened. He also told officers the two of them had differences.

Police arrested the older man him and though the whereabouts of the 27-year-old were unknown, he eventually turned up at Paphos hospital with a lawyer, where he was arrested.

He was kept overnight for observation with no major injuries and was taken to Paphos district court on Wednesday morning for a remand order.

He faces charges of illegal possession of a firearm, illegal entrance and for having his face covered with the intent of committing an offence.

The 45-year-old was remanded on Tuesday for six days in connection with attempted murder, illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
