Bullets struck the owner, 56, his wife, 44, his two sons, 22 and 25, and a male employee, 58.

Naim Akl, the owner’s 25-year-old son, was killed at the scene. The other four victims were taken to trauma centres for treatment.

According to police, the owner’s 13-year-old daughter was also inside the restaurant at the time but was uninjured.
