Young Woman Dies after Shooting outside Zahle Nightclub
The young woman Sara Suleiman, 24, died Sunday of wounds incurred in a shooting outside the Blue Bar nightclub in the Bekaa city of Zahle, media reports said.
Simon Mouawad, 33, was also wounded in the leg in the incident, LBCI television said.
The TV network said Sara and her friends were leaving the nightclub at 3:30 am when a man identified as Taha al-Masri passed by them in a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV.
“There was a traffic accident outside the nightclub and a person asked Masri to move his car, which infuriated him,” LBCI said.
Masri then opened fire indiscriminately towards the nightclub, which resulted in the wounding of Sara and Simon, the TV network added.
