According to local media reports a 76-year old disgruntled former employee entered the building, killing a woman and two men before turning the weapon on himself.
“Among the dead was European Navigation’s owner, said police spokeswoman Konstantina Dimoglidou, who didn’t name the victim,” reported Athens News.
Another Greek news outlet, Ekathemerini, has spoken to European Navigation employees as they escaped the attack: “I heard the gunshots, I heard the first two. I headed towards the stairs to see what was happening. I saw two guys coming down; they said, ‘It’s Aris with a gun, he’s shooting.’ Of course, I dashed outside, towards the garden, and made my way out through the back door of the garage.”
Police, fire engines and ambulances were stationed outside the offices of European Navigation in a southern suburb of the capital. Earlier, anti-terrorism forces entered the building, Reuters reporters at the scene said.
