Four Albanian nationals were arrested following a police chase and an exchange of gunfire with police officers in the west Athens district of Ilion on Friday afternoon, following an armed robbery of a nearby super market.

According to reports, three of the four suspects entered the super market armed with assault rifles and pistols, seizing an unknown amount of money and fleeing in a stolen car driven by a fourth accomplice.

They were detected by a police patrol car, however, and an ensuing chase led to a collision of the suspects' vehicle with another car.

The suspects were subsequently chased on foot and finally arrested in the courtyard of a home. The weapons and the money from the heist were recovered and confiscated.
