BEIRUT: A dispute between a man and his son led to a standoff and shootout between the two family members that left the 25-year-old son dead and the father wounded.
A security source told The Daily Star that the gunfight occurred between Mohammad Hasan Ayyoub against his son, Omar, in Rihan, in the northern region of Dinnieh.
Financial issues and a dispute over inheritance sparked Tuesday morning shootout, the source added.
