Two advocates were gunned down by another lawyer allegedly over a property dispute in Shahdara, Lahore on Saturday.

Police said advocates Irfan Khokhar and Afzal were shot dead by Muhammad Bilal, who barged into their house and opened fire. The suspect is on the run.

Officials believed the murder stemmed from the possession of a 2.5 marla house near Jia Musa where Irfan was living.

On Saturday, Bilal came armed to the place and started quarrelling with the victims. After an exchange of some hot words, he took out his gun and shot at the victims, injuring both of them critically.

The injured men were shifted to a nearby hospital, where doctors pronounced them dead on arrival. Police have moved the bodies to a morgue till investigations are completed.
