Security agencies started an investigation to find out reasons behind this incident and evidences, especially after the occurrence of two terrorist incidents in the city’s neighborhoods during the past period.

The police said that at 9.30 pm local time on Tuesday, Dammam police opened a case of shooting a security man, who was riding his own vehicle wearing plain clothes in Faiha neighborhood in Dammam.
