The condition of one of the policemen who was shot at last night in Kipseli is still critical. As already told you, the two policemen were checking a call for a stolen car, when they saw armed criminals. At the moment when the policemen checked the ID of one of the criminals, a woman walked towards them and said that the questioned is her friend. This distracted the policemen for a second, which was enough for the second criminal to jump from behind a car and start shooting at the authorities.

As a result, both policemen fell on the ground, covered in blood and the criminals stole their weapons and cell phones and ran away. The woman offered her cell phone and one of the policemen called for help. Today, the 50 year old woman was taken to the district attorney for questioning. According to MEGA TV, during the check, one of the criminals said that he is Russian, living legally in Greece.

The wounds of both policemen are caused by a firearm – probably 9 millimeter Makarov. The condition of one of the injured – 30 year old policeman shot in the neck is still critical. His colleague is 26 years old and his life is out of danger. The Athens and Pieria police are still looking for both shooters.

The good news is that the two robbers, who ran away from the Evelpidon court, were found by the same policemen from whom they managed to run away. As we already told you, one Georgian and one Kazakhstani, charged with stealing ?169 form a supermarket, managed to ran away in the day of the court hearing. The policemen who let this happen were given a 24 hour deadline to find them, otherwise they would have been questioned by the district attorney.
