A personal dispute between a building janitor and members of the al-Meqdad clan erupted into gunfire on Friday in the al-Meqdad neighborhood near al-Msharrafiyeh, state-run National News Agency reported.

The janitor opened fire from his pistol, which left Mohammed al-Meqdad and a man from al-Ashhab family critically wounded.

Earlier, MTV said two people were killed in the incident as al-Jadeed television said one person was killed and another was wounded.

“The Hadi Nasrallah Highway was closed near al-Zaghloul Restaurant as the army sent reinforcements to the area,” al-Jadeed said.

Security forces have launched a probe and are pursuing the shooter, NNA said.

A dispute with a Janitor?! what happened? did they walk on a freshly mopped floor? Come on ... say it as it is ... this is too stupid to be true, even in Lebanon. What Janitor would hold a pistol? Additionally, I thought HA had their people on a leash ... seems they are spreading themselves too thin to maintain control and power.
