Islamabad, June 3 (IANS) At least seven people, including two policemen, died Sunday after unidentified masked gunmen opened fire at a shop in Pakistan's Quetta city, officials said.

Police said four attackers armed with automatic guns and riding on two motorcycles reached a shop on Sirki road and opened fire at people present in the shop. The attackers hid their faces with masks.
Five people, including the owner of the shop and his son, died on the spot.
