Abu Dhabi: Two Saudi men were arrested after firing a gun into the air in the courtyard of their Riyadh house and posting a video clip on social media, police said.

The media spokesperson for the Riyadh police, Major Khaled Al Kreidis, said the men, in their 30s, were remanded in custody after endangering the safety of others and boasting about their crime.

“The suspects were identified and caught after they appeared in an online video, pointing a gun in the air and shooting randomly from the courtyard of their Riyadh home,” Major Al Kreidis said.

All legal measures were taken against the men, and they were referred to the Public Prosecution, pending further questioning and trial, police said.
