Pakistan detains American in shooting of two men in Lahore
Karin Brulliard and Aoun Sahi
"ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN - A U.S. consular employee fatally shot two Pakistani men who might have been trying to rob him while he drove in the eastern city of Lahore, and another American vehicle at the scene hit and killed a passerby, police said Thursday.
"Umar Saeed, a police officer who oversees the teeming district where the incident took place, said that two Pakistani men on a motorbike approached the U.S. official's Honda sedan and that the American apparently shot them in self-defense. Another police official said the two men were carrying pistols.
"Saeed said that another U.S. vehicle was traveling with the sedan and that the American fled the scene in that car. As it sped away, Saeed said, it hit a motorcyclist, killing him. Saeed said the American involved in the shooting was in custody while police investigated the incident, but he declined to say whether others were being held."
