Five persons including 4 persons of the same family were injured in the shooting incident that took place in Batapola last night (31).
 
Two gunmen on a motorcycle had carried out the firing.
 
A father, his children, and another individual were injured in this incident, which occurred at the Iriyagahadola area.
 
Two of them are receiving treatment at Batapola Hospital while 3 injured persons have been transferred to Karapitiya Teaching Hospital as their condition was serious.
 
Police said they were on their way to drop a mechanic who had visited their home to repair a vehicle when they had come under attack.
 
Police suspect underworld rivalry may be the reason for this incident.
 
3 police teams have been deployed to probe the shooting.
 
Meanwhile, 4 persons were killed in a shooting incident that occurred at Kosgoda on Sunday morning.
 
Police are trying to ascertain whether there is any link to these two cases.
