Golden Dawn shooting gun identified

Police investigating the killing of two members of the far-right Golden Dawn party and the wounding of a third have said the gun had not been used in previous terrorist attacks.

The gunman fired 12 rounds from a Zastava Tokarev type semi-auto pistol.

A police source said a video from a nearby security camera confirmed accounts from Golden Dawn members that the attacker started firing from 15 metres away and killed his victims from point-blank range.

The gunman fired at a fourth Golden Dawn member, who got inside a building unharmed.
