A 53-year-old man was shot dead by a 40-year-old acquaintance late on Saturday night, after they had both eaten out together at a taverna near Tympaki, Iraklio in Crete.
Witnesses said the two men had both consumed large amounts of alcohol and got into an argument as they were leaving the taverna. The 53-year-old left on a motorbike heading toward Tympaki, while the other man followed in a car driven by a third man, following the motorbike.
In the centre of Tympaki, the 40-year-old apparently rolled down his window and shot the man on the motorcycle, who fell down dead.
The culprit then went home and police finally managed to place him under arrest in the early hours of Sunday morning, along with the driver of the car from which the 53-year-old was shot and killed.
