This time round a shooting incident hits the news, which involved a 43-year-old man who actually locked himself inside his pub situated in Dhekalia road and threatened to kill himself after shooting and wounding his Ex wife.
The saga started around 10am on Monday the 26th of January 2015, when a 41-year-old Moldovan woman with the support of her friends visited the 43-year-old at his pub to discuss the topic of child support. To cut a long story short, at one point the man became angry and fired his shotgun 2 times in the air. 2 of the pellets hit the woman's shoulder and 1 hit her abdomen. The injured woman soon after rushed to the Oroklini Police station to report the incident, at which time the man locked himself in the pub and started to drink.
When the Larnaca Police arrived at the scene of the crime, the man flat refused to cooperate, at which point he threatened to take his life. The man eventually surrendered to the negotiators who were camped outside the pub in question since noon on the same day. The man only actually agreed to leave the pub after his lawyer carefully negotiated the terms of his surrender.
Police later stated that the man will stay at the Larnaca Police station until he appears before in the courts of Larnaca within the same week.
