Police are investigating a case of premeditated murder after a man was shot and died of his injuries on Thursday evening in a village in the Larnaca village of Ormidhia.
Panayiotis Kallitsionis, aka Valentinos, was a private security guard who was also injured in the quadruple killings in Ayia Napa on June 23, 2016.
At around 11.10 pm on Thursday, police were informed of shots being fired and a person injured.
Police officers rushed to the scene where they found 29-year-old Kallitsionis on the veranda of his father’s home, with injuries caused by a gun.
Ambulances from the British bases arrived, and medical staff applied first aid, but the man succumbed to his injuries.
Chief of operations Demetris Demetriou, Famagusta police chief Giorgos Economou, and other officials visited the scene.
“Around eleven o’clock in the evening, a 29-year-old Greek Cypriot was murdered in a village in the Larnaca district,” Economou said late on Thursday.
“The victim is a person who has been involved with police in several cases, while examinations are still in the initial stage.”
