AMMAN — A 50-year-old man who was shot in the chest following a brawl at Azmi Mufti Camp in Irbid last Wednesday died on Saturday of his wounds, an official source said.

The victim and his brother were shot by a pump-action rifle during a brawl with other family members last week, the source said, adding that they were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.

“The victim’s brother remains in stable condition in hospital,” he told The Jordan Times.

The police arrested four suspects in connection with the incident, the source added.

Pathologist Ali Shotar of the Irbid National Institute of Forensic Medicine performed an autopsy on the victim on Saturday.

“The victim died of wounds to the chest from pump-action rifle bullets,” Shotar’s report concluded.
