A judicial source told the Daily Star that the two are now in custody. They are currently facing charges of negligence that led to the death of Major Jalal Shrief and  Sergeant Major Ziad Attar.


According to reports, Hussein was unarmed when he entered the station. He got into a fight with his brother after which the officers were forced to intervene. He was able to disarm Shreif and take his gun. After he shot him and the two other personnel, he turned the gun around and shot himself in the head.
