    DOHA (Sputnik) - The police killed two wanted terrorist suspects in a shootout in the eastern Saudi city of Dammam on Wednesday, the kingdom’s Al Ekhbariya television channel reported.

    The incident took place in Al-Anoud neighborhood.

    An eyewitness told the TV channel that two unidentified persons had first opened fire on passersby. After police arrived, the shooters took cover in a residential building, where they were gunned down by law enforcement officers within about 30 minutes.

    Amid the shootout, security forces managed to evacuate people from the area.

    Another witness, a local resident, said that the police had already cordoned off the area a few days ago while searching for the same two suspected terrorists.

    Photos shared on Twitter show the car damaged in the clash between the police and the suspects.
