The Greek Police (EL.AS) on Friday released information about the identity of the 21-year-old man who was injured in last Wednesday’s shootout in the northern Athens suburb of Pefki in which two police officers were also shot at.  The suspect, who is currently hospitalized under guard, was identified as Theophilos Mavropoulos born in 1990 in the Athens’ district of Maroussi and he is allegedly associated with the “Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire” terrorist group.

Police have linked him with the terrorist group after his fingerprints were matched with fingerprints retrieved from an apartment in the central city of Volos where three members of the group were arrested together with other two individuals. His fingerprints were also found in an apartment in Athens’ Kallithea district during a police investigation.
