Athens - A Greek Roma woman killed a man accused of murdering her son on Monday when she opened fire inside an Athens court, also wounding another man, officials said.

"A woman opened fire on two people" who were waiting to be questioned by a judge, said Athens Chief Prosecutor Panayiota Fakou.

Police arrested the 33-year-old woman.

The man who was killed, also a Roma, died at the scene, a police source said.

The other victim, who was wounded in the leg, was taken to hospital.

No other details of the shooting were immediately available.

The courthouse lies about 2km from the city centre.

    Our courts would look like a war zone if we tried to do what she did.

    Great thinking lady, kudos to you, the buggers were probably gonna let the man free. It takes a moerse effort to raise a kid and then some lousy fool decides to get rid of them just like that

    I have to admit, if someone EVER harmed or killed my son I would do more then just kill them, I would torturn them until I feel satisfied that they haved suffered enough and then I would end their life. I know that sounds a bit gruesome but dont you DARE mess with my kids and think you can get away with it by going to jail for 5-10 years. I will not let that happen...
