Police search for gunmen in Avtokomanda shooting

The gunmen who killed a policeman and injured two other policemen are still at large, police sources told Makfax news agency on Friday.

"The police pressed ahead with a thorough investigation, but so far there are no new information," Interior Ministry spokesman Ivo Kotevski said.

The police believe that the car they have recovered late Thursday was used hours before in the attack. The car was found just outside the village of Aracinovo. The police found two automatic rifles, one heavy machine-gun, one hand-mortar and several shells of firearms, as they scoured the car for clues. The car had fake license plates.

Late on Thursday, gunmen ambushed police vehicle, carrying members of special police unit Tigers, in Skopje's district Avtokomanda. The attack left three policemen injured. One of them died on the way to hospital.
