KABUL (Pajhwok): Police officials said two persons were killed when a number of armed robbers engaged in a clash in 5th police district of capital Kabul on Thursday morning.

The shooting took place in the Silo area of 5th police district at around 11am.

Police spokesman, Basir Ahmad Mujahid, told Pajhwok Afghan News that armed men traveling in a luxury car opened fire on another vehicle in Kabul that left two people killed and a third wounded.

“Initial investigations show that these people were most likely members of a robbery gang and they were killed due to a difference over an issue with their accomplices,” he said.

He said two people including the one injured were arrested in connection to the incident. These robbers were under police chase from long time ago.

Eyewitnesses said that armed men in a luxury vehicle opened fire on a private car.

As a result, two people were killed and two others injured. The attackers managed to escape, eyewitnesses said.
