Police in Thessaloniki were investigating over the weekend a shooting which allegedly left one person injured on the premises of the Aristotle University in the northern port city late on Friday.

Witnesses told police that they saw a scuffle break out between a group of people and subsequently heard shots being fired.

In a related development, New Democracy party secretary Andreas Papamimikos presented a proposal for the development of a university police force to a group of Thessaloniki university and technical college (TEI) rectors on Saturday.
