QUETTA: At least two people were killed when armed men opened fire at a vehicle, in what is termed by police as an incident of target killing on Quetta's Sabzal Road on Tuesday.

The victims, who have been identified as Raz Muhammad and Muhammad Tahir, died on the spot. Their bodies were shifted to Civil Hospital Quetta for postmortem.

The assailants escaped unhurt from the scene of the crime.

Police and other law enforcement personnel reached the spot and cordoned off the area as a probe into the incident went underway. Security officials termed the shooting an act of targeted killing.
