A former employee of a Greek shipowner shot three people dead before killing himself at the company’s office in Athens on Monday.
Greek media reported police and ambulances were called outside the offices of Karnessis family-controlled tanker owner European Navigation in Glyfada, a southern suburb of the capital.
Authorities have yet to confirm the identities of the dead, but reports indicate that one of them was a member of the Karnessis family. Spyros Karnessis’s sister Maria has been named among the victims, as has CEO Antonis Vlassakis.
Local sources have identified the gunman as a 70-year-old Egyptian national who had recently been terminated from his position at the firm.
