Two others seriously injured as bullets fired at wedding return to earth
An Emirati guest was killed and two others were seriously injured when they were accidentally hit by bullets shot into the air during celebrations at a wedding in Fujairah on Friday.
The three Emirati male guests were rushed to Dibba Hospital and were later transferred to Fujairah Hospital for specialist treatment, Dubai-based 7DAYS newspaper reported on Sunday.
The three guests were injured when they were hit by bullets fired into the air as part of gunfire celebrations at a local wedding, with one guest dying en route to the hospital.
Fujairah police are currently investigating the matter but no foul play has been suspected.
“Our men went to the wedding site to investigate the incident, which we believe happened by accident,” Fujairah Police Chief Brigadier Mohammed al Kaabi was quoted as saying by Arabic daily newspaper Al Ittihad.
Condolensces to the family. It's tragic. I understand that this is part of the culture but how were these guests hit if the guns are shot in the air?
Just a question what culture brings weapons to a wedding? Question when you shoot a friend or relation with your gun at a wedding is that not a crime?
ever been to Alabama or Arkansas?
