On October 20, the Jerash Governorate police were notified that a child was struck by a stray bullet near his residence and later died in the hospital.

An investigation team gathered information and apprehended anyone who had been hosting a celebration or social event at the time of the incident where some individuals may have engaged in “festive firing”.

Forensic ballistics examinations linked a gun to the bullet that killed the young boy after police zeroed in on a prime suspect and seized weapons.

The PSD warned the public against engaging in “festive firing” to avoid the death or injury of innocent people.
