“Security authorities received a report of shooting between a number of people in Al-Amoah province,” the official SPA news agency reported citing Zaid Muhammad al-Sabbash, a spokesman for Aseer region’s police.

Three other people were injured in the shootout, according to the spokesman who also indicated that measures were taken to arrest the rest of suspects.
