Posted by yourpakistan on January 27, 2011


An American man shot dead two Pakistanis in a street in Lahore city on Thursday. The US citizen told police officials that he fired his pistol in self defence. “The American national told us he was driving his vehicle and stopped at a traffic signal. He saw motorcycle riders and one pulled out a pistol. The man told us he then pulled out his pistol and fired in self-defence,” Lahore police chief Aslam Tarin told AFP.

“He’s an American national. He’s in our custody and we are investigating.” A third Pakistani man was killed a short time later when a car from the US consulate in Lahore hit two pedestrians at the scene of the shooting, Tarin added.

“One person died in the accident,” Tarin said. Television footage showed that a crowd had gathered at the scene of the incidents, setting tyres on fire in protest.
The US embassy in Islamabad confirmed the man involved was a consular official.

“We can confirm he’s a consular employee, but we don’t know exactly what happened. There’s a lot of speculation and we’re speaking with the police to find out exactly what happened,” US embassy spokesman Alberto Rodriguez told AFP.

Chief Minister Punjab, Mian Shahbaz Sharif has ordered Inspector General (IG) Punjab to submit a report on the incident. By AFP / Express
