The 45-year-old Albanian accused of murdering his 50-year-old compatriot, at noon last Thursday, outside a gas station, in the area of ​​Analipsi, in eastern Thessaloniki, is being brought before the criminal prosecution prosecutor.

The 45-year-old surrendered voluntarily, 24 hours after the crime, to the Police, confessing his act. He himself, being examined by the police officers of the Crimes Against Life Department of Thessaloniki, seems to have claimed that lately he has been receiving threats from the victim.

“I had no intention of killing. He threatened my life and attacked me,” he reportedly told police, describing the scene of the murder. The 45-year-old, father of three minor children, reportedly testified that he acquired the weapon – with which he committed the crime – for reasons of protection, due to the threats he claims he received.

As for the cause of the “hostile climate” that existed against him, the defendant, according to the same information, spoke of some financial difference he had with the 50-year-old.

After shooting his victim twice, he drove away from the scene of the crime in his car and headed towards Halkidiki, via the Thessaloniki – Neo Moudania highway. Along the way he threw the weapon, which, despite the police investigations, has not been located, while he left the vehicle on the beach of Kalyves in Halkidiki.
