Food order turns into gunfire at Saudi restaurant

Published: Updated:

A dispute that broke out between a customer and a restaurant employee in the Saudi capital developed into an ugly scene unfamiliar to Riyadh residents.

It all started when a young man walked into the restaurant and began an argument with an employee who takes orders. Shortly after that, the customer left only to return half an hour afterwards with a gang of 11 young men armed with knives and a machine gun.

They began attacking employs and opening fire at the restaurant, causing damage and putting everyone around at a horror scene.

Surveillance Cameras showed the man carrying Kalashnikov masked, but police vowed to identify and arrest him.

In Saudi Arabia, carrying weapons is not allowed in public places, and whoever carries unlicensed arms can receive a two-year sentence in prison or be fined 7000-riyal ($1,866).
