Police say 5 persons including a father and his 3 children were injured in a shooting incident in Batapola in Ambalangoda.

Police said that the assailants on a motorcycle had opened fire at a group of people travelling by a van.

The injured have been hospitalized. 

Meanwhile, four persons including a father and 2 sons of the same family were killed in 3 separate shooting incidents in Kosgoda on Sunday morning.

The 15-year-old schoolboy who sustained injuries was admitted to Karapitiya Teaching Hospital.

Police believe a clash among underworld gangs may be the reason for those shooting incidents.

A few months back, one of the accomplices of 'Kosgoda Tharuka' was shot and killed. He was also known as 'Kosgoda Lokuwaa'.

It was reported that another underworld member 'Kosgoda Sujee' had supported the killing of ‘Kosgoda Lokuwaa'.

Police said the murder victims had links with ‘Kosgoda Sujee' and they may have been targeted in retaliation for the killing of ‘Kosgoda Lokuwaa'.
