The man, identified as Hassan H., opened fire inside the building, chained the doors shut, took municipality officials hostage, and forced traffic on the road outside to halt after a speed-bump he had placed in front of his house without official permission was removed, the National News Agency reported Tuesday.

Following the incident, Army and Internal Security Forces officers arrived on the scene and re-opened the road and the municipality office.
