Police charge two for firing shots in the air


Two men aged 27, suspected of firing gunshots outside a coffeeshop in a village in the Paphos district have been charged and released to be summoned at a later date, police said on Wednesday.

Police received a complaint at around 12.35am on Monday morning by a 50-year-old man who was at the coffeeshop in the village of Panayia at the time of the incident.

The 50-year-old told police that a silver pick-up truck stopped in front of the coffeeshop and the passenger fired two shots with a hunting shotgun in the air.

They then parked the car and went in coffeeshop where those present asked for explanations.

In response, the 27-year-olds began threatening the coffeeshop crowd, with the 50-year-old saying one of them had threatened and verbally abused him.

The rest immediately intervened, after which the two 27-year-olds left the coffeeshop and drove off.
