BEIRUT: A man was shot and killed Friday during a personal dispute in Hay el-Sellom, raising tensions in the Beirut southern suburb, a security source told The Daily Star.

Mohammad al-Ajami was fatally shot by a man from the Zogheib family, prompting the Army to deploy in the neighborhood to prevent a possible escalation of tensions.

The two had unresolved financial issues, the source said.

Security forces are in pursuit of Zogheib.
