A man allegedly killed four persons of his neighbours after opening fire on them for playing apparently 'loud music' in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa's Bannu district, according to Express News on Tuesday.

The incident took place in Awais Colony within the Mara Khel police station limits.

The culprit, identified as Naseeb, had told his next door neighbours to turn down the music being played by them. The neighbours, however, refused to do so and they exchanged hot words which then led to a physical altercation.

Naseeb then in a fit of rage broke into their home and opened fire on them in which the father, mother and son were killed. While a bystander was also killed with six others sustained injuries.

He then managed to flee the scene unchallenged. The injured were shifted to hospital.

Police said that a case has been registered against Naseeb with efforts underway to arrest him.
