A man was killed and another injured by gunfire near Lahore's Defence Morr area allegedly after a fight broke out between three intoxicated friends on Monday, police said.

The three men, Azeem, Abbas and Shaikh, were seated in a car when, following an altercation, Shaikh allegedly opened fire, killing Azeem and injuring Abbas, Superintendent Police Cantt Rana Tahir said, adding that all three were intoxicated at the time of the incident.

The dead and the injured were shifted to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Lahore, whereas the accused ─ the son of a retired colonel — fled the scene of the incident. Azeem and Abbas are also the sons of army officers, the SP added.

The families of the victims are yet to file a complaint against the suspect, SP Tahir said.
