By Aamir Latif

KARACHI, Pakistan (AA) - A lawyer on Tuesday shot dead his two colleagues after a heated argument during a court proceeding in northeastern Lahore city on Tuesday, police and local media reported.

The accused, and the deceased, who are said to be relatives, were contesting a land ownership case in the Lahore district court, where they exchanged hot words during the proceedings, according to local broadcaster ARY News.

The assailant -- a junior lawyer identified as Rana Kashif -- fired at his colleagues as soon as they stepped out the courtroom, killing them on the spot before he was arrested, the news channel reported.

Live footage aired on the channel showed the police struggling to save the accused from other lawyers who tried to attack him.

This is the second firing incident at the same court in less than a month. In January, a cop, and an under trial prisoner were killed when gunmen fired at them.
