‘Deliberately aimed at’

Reports the Guardian (under the somewhat inaccurate headline “Policeman ‘deliberately aimed at’ Greek rioter”):

The bullet that killed a teenage boy, triggering the worst riots in decades in Greece, was deliberately aimed by a police officer and not fired as a warning shot, a ballistics report has revealed.

Six weeks after the fatal shooting, experts have concluded that special police guard Epameinondas Korkoneas fired “in the direction” of the schoolboy and not in the air, as he has vigorously maintained. Fifteen-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos died after the bullet ricocheted off a concrete bollard in a central Athens street and struck him in the heart.
