A wanted man was killed in Al-Namas in Saudi Arabia after he attacked security forces with a knife and refused to hand himself over.

The man was identified as Khaled Mohammed Ali al-Shahri, a Saudi national.

According to an interior ministry spokesperson, Shahri is involved in the crime of killing four members of the security forces last month at a checkpoint in Asir.

On Saturday at 9:00 p.m., security forces besieged the house of Shahri’s parents in Al-Wahda in Al-Namas governorate and called on him to turn himself over. However, he refused and attacked security forces with a knife.

“He was dealt with according to the requirements of the situation and his threat was neutralized. He was injured and he died after being transferred to hospital,” the spokesperson added.
