JEDDAH: Police officers in Riyadh have killed a suspected Daesh supporter and arrested his accomplice.
The incident occurred in a furnished apartment building in the Al-Rayyan district after a worker reported that one of the men had declared support for Daesh and accused the government of being composed of infidels.
Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki, spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, said when police arrived at the apartment, the suspect resisted arrest and even pointed a pistol at them, prompting counter-action.
Al-Turki said no one else was injured and that the investigation is ongoing.
The accomplice of the deceased was seen fleeing the scene and was arrested. The police seized another pistol in the rented apartment and found out later that the car driven by the suspects was involved in a previous shooting case.
