Interior Ministry reports incident in Riyadh

The Ministry of Interior has reported that investigations are under way into an incident yesterday in the Al-Amana district to the north of the city of Riyadh, involving persons who clashed with security officers. About 5 p.m., a security patrol became suspicious of a driver and requested that he stop. Instead, he fled, and was pursued. He stopped in a rest area, and exited the car carrying weapons. Two cars came out from behind the building, and random shots were fired, fortunately without injury.
