Initial investigation showed that Ahalul went to his cousin’s house at around 6 p.m. armed with a .38 revolver.

The two men then engaged in a discussion which turned into a heated argument.

Amid their altercation, Ahalul drew his gun and shot Aydal several times.

The suspect then fled after the victim plunged on the ground, bloodied.

Police recovered a deformed slug of a .38 revolver at the crime scene.

Hot pursuit operations were launched by police for the possible arrest of the suspect.  (Dan TorIbio)
