Later on Sunday, the 32-year-old Yerevan man, his brother and several other individuals went to the area near a petrol station in Aparan, where they met one of the disputants and beat him.

The conflict continued at an area near the garbage dump in Nigavan village, where the 32-year-old man, who had a gun, fired it at his opponents. As a result, seven victims were taken to different medical centers, were two of them died.

The shooter has been arrested. A probe into the further circumstances of the incident is underway.
