A MAN has killed two people and injured six after opening fire from his balcony, cops have said.
Rajpal Singh Rajawat, a security guard at a bank, was involved in a neighbour row over pet dogs before things took a turn for the worse.
Rajawat and his neighbour Vimal were walking their dogs in Krishna Bagh Colony at 11pm on Thursday when the two animals lunged at each other.
Vimal would have also thrown a stone at Rajawat’s dog, Hindustan Times reported.
An argument the unfolded between the two men, after which Rajawat ran up to his first-floor home and fired at Vimal using a 12-bore shotgun.
A video of the horrific shooting shows Rajawat loading the shotgun and firing a warning shot in the air before aiming at the street below.
The shots are followed by screams from the street.
“Two pet dogs from our lane, including the one owned by Rajawat, started fighting with each other,” neighbour Pallavi Borse told local media.
“During their fight, when they started entering Vimal’s house, his brother Pramod chased Rajawat’s dog away with a stick. Soon a heated argument broke out between the two parties over it.”
Vimal, who ran a hair salon in the city, died on the spot along with his brother-in-law Rahul Verma.
Rahul’s pregnant wife, Jyoti, suffered a pellet injury to her eye, police said.
Six people suffered bullet injuries and were rushed to hospital, with two of them being seriously injured.
Rajawat was arrested as well as his son and another unknown relative.
Cops have since filed a case of murder against him.
