Greek police look for clues in the killings of two Golden Dawn members

Greek police hope they may be aided in their investigation into the point-blank execution of two members of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party by video footage of the killings taken by CCTV cameras on the spot and at about 20 other sites in the Athens neighborhood where it happened, Neo Iraklio.
The footage reportedly shows the two assailants parking their motorcycle about 50 meters from the party’s offices and approaching four men who were guarding the building.
One of the attackers opened fire with a handgun from a distance of about 15 meters. One of the four men managed to hide inside the building but the three other victims, two of whom died, were struck by bullets.
The gunman approached two of the victims and shot them in the head from a close distance. He was wearing a baseball cap, while the other suspect was wearing a motorcycle helmet. One person who was wounded and another who was fired at escaped being killed by running, while the two victims apparently froze, the cameras indicate, even though they were fired at last.
Police have also collected about 20 witness statements. They also found a 13th bullet casing at the scene, following the 12 found early in the investigation and said it may have been fired at a member of the public who jumped on his motorcycle to follow the two men when they rode off.
Unlike the killing of  an anti-fascist, Pavlos Fyssas, in September for which a member of the party was immediately arrested, the killing of the two Golden Dawn members left police scouring for clues amid reports it may have been the act of terrorists or left-wing groups who wanted revenge for the murder of Fyssas.
That killing sparked a government crackdown on Golden Dawn and the arrest of its hierarchy, some of whom are being held in detention while awaiting trial on charges of running a criminal gang. The party blamed the removal of police protection for the killings of its two members.
