Unknown suspects inside the shack fired numerous gunshots at the officers when they knocked at the door, with the officers returning fire in retaliation. They confiscated three pistols with ammunition and mobile phones. Four suspects between the ages of 22 and 25 were arrested and detained on charges of possession of prohibited firearms and ammunition, possession of presumed stolen property and attempted murder.
