He said according to unproven reports at least three people were wounded in the firing. However, hospital sources confirmed to KUNA that one of the wounded dead and two were critically injured.
It was not right away clear whether it was a terrorist act or an enmity case. However, the DCO said that it appears to be a case of enmity between two rival groups.
