An 82-year-old man from Paphos was remanded in custody for six days on Saturday after having been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The incident took place in the early hours of Saturday morning in the village of Konia.

Paphos police assistant operations director Michalis Nikolaou explained that the man had been “disturbed” by loud music being played at a café and had previously filed a complaint with the police.

The police had visited the venue and asked them to turn it down, but when the music continued, the man took matters into his own hands.

He went to the café with his shotgun and shot a light fixture, with four people, a 26-year-old man and women aged 25, 19, and 18, sustaining minor injuries as a result.

They were taken to the Paphos general hospital and received first aid treatment before being discharged.

Police are now investigating possible charges of attempted murder, acts intended to cause actual bodily harm, carrying a weapon to incite terror, and the illegal use of a firearm.

Their investigation into the matter is ongoing.
