CCTV footage of the incident reveals that Shahzaib got out of a rickshaw and shot Eeman who was walking towards a white car. After shooting her, he waited for a few seconds and then shot himself dead with the same pistol.
According to SHO Majid Korai, Shahzaib shot her once in her abdomen and twice on her thigh and then shot himself once in his head.
Initial investigation reveal that Shahzaib worked at the intercity bus terminal while Eeman was a bus hostess. Police believe that the incident apparently took place over their breakup. However, they are investigating the case from different angles.
The Brigade police and Rangers reached the crime scene and collected four empty shells and some live rounds of a 9mm pistol. This evidence was sent to the forensic division of the Sindh police for ballistics cross-matching.
