Two employees were shot dead and one was injured after armed men opened fire indiscriminate firing inside a fire-brigade office in Karachi on Saturday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The firing incident took place in the fire-brigade office located near Bilal Colony Korangi area of Karachi.

According to an eyewitness named Zeeshan Siddiqui, present in the control room at the time of the incident, two unidentified gunmen came on foot to the office and asked about the on-duty employees from the guard.

The outlaws took all four on-duty employees including him to the control room and put a pistol on guard’s head and asked him to recite Shahada. After that, the assailants started firing indiscriminately and as a result of firing, two employees named Amir and security guard Mehboob died on the spot while one was seriously wounded.

Later, the injured employee named Irshad went to the nearby petrol station and informed the police.

The police reached the crime scene and took the fire brigade eyewitness into custody in order to record his statement to proceed further investigation.
