LAHORE: A 28-year-old property dealer was killed and his father, a railway employee, suffered injuries after two unidentified people opened fire on them at their doorstep in Atif Park New Bhohiwal early on Wednesday. The motive for the attack was said to be some property dispute.
Shalimar police said two assailants first invited victim Waqas and opened fire after getting into an argument. The victim`s father identified as Khalid Baig also suffered gunshot wounds when he tried to rescue his son.
