A KLASHINKOV semi-automatic may have been the weapon used during the attempted triple murder in the heart of Nicosia on Tuesday night.
The rifle was found yesterday in a field adjacent to Kennedy Avenue, and has been sent for ballistics tests to determine the caliber and whether it was fired recently. Police said the rifle’s cartridge was loaded.
Authorities have unleashed a manhunt for the perpetrator(s), but so far have had few leads and no witnesses.
The three victims of the murder attempt suffered minor gun wounds. They have claimed not to suspect anyone.
