Police on Tuesday are investigating a case of shooting and malicious damage on New Year’s Day with arrest warrants having been issued against two wanted men aged 24 and 27.

According to police spokesman, Michalis Nikolaou, a 28-year-old man reported that on New Year’s Day, around 4:30 in the morning while at an entertainment venue with friends, he received a call from a known person, asking him to meet to resolve a dispute.
