Two men beaten and shot on street at Galati

Two males – father and son, were beaten and shot by a group of youth including some under-aged, Mediafax reports. According to eyewitnesses, the incident happened near an apartment building in Galati’s Micro 18 district around 5:30 pm Saturday, when a group of youth armed with weapons, knives and axes attacked the two men. Then, they climbed into cars and vanished, leaving the two men in a blood poodle. The two males were taken to the Galati county hospital. ‘The father, aged 47, was in hemorrhagic shock, a life-threatening condition. He had a lesion in the posterior area of his knee, most likely made by a white weapon. He has already been operated upon. The son has a cranial-cerebral traumatism that does not require surgery, and is kept under observation for the time being,’ Nicolae Bacalbasa, the hospital’s director said. Antena 3 reported that four of the assailants were caught by police, who say the aggressors targeted another person whom they suspected to have stolen a laptop, with the two being collateral victims. Six cartridges from a gas or rubber bullet pistol were found at the site, some of which were unused.
