Saudi Arabia: Four men arrested for random shooting in Riyadh

  • Saudi News

The Riyadh Police have arrested four young men who appeared in a video posted on social media platforms shooting randomly from automatic rifles, local media reported on Monday.

The Saudi suspects, in their 30s, were arrested after appearing in footage firing in the air in a neighbourhood in Riyadh, flaunting rules on possession of firearms, Colonel Shaker Al Tuwaijri, spokesperson for the Riyadh Police, said in a press statement.

The four shooters were identified after Criminal Investigation Department officers examined the content of the video, which went viral on social media platforms.

The video has angered Saudi social media users who demanded the arrest of shooters who pose a danger to public safety.

Legal procedures have already been taken to refer them to the public prosecution for legal action against them, Col. Al Tuwaijri added.
