BEIRUT: A suspect in an 18-month-old murder case was arrested over the weekend, a statement from the Internal Security Forces said Wednesday.
The suspect, 33, was identified by his initials H.H.
H.H. is believed to have lured the victim, his friend, to a Mount Lebanon village and shot him dead.
In February 2012, 28-year-old Hamzeh Fawzi Itani was found dead in Bshamoun, Mount Lebanon with gunshot wounds to his head.
Itani was found soaked in blood inside his Honda Civic near the horseback riding club in Bshamoun.
Two bullets had penetrated Itani’s skull, causing brain damage that led to his death.
The police statement said the suspect confessed to killing his friend over disputes which the suspect said caused him “moral harm.”
He said he lured the victim to Bshamoun telling him that someone wanted to meet them there to buy Itani’s car and shot him dead once they arrived.
