TEHRAN, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- A conscript shot dead a law enforcement officer and a citizen in the northern Iranian province of Alborz early Saturday, the official news agency IRNA reported.

The shooter, serving in the relief unit of the Savojbolagh County police, was on a patrol mission with the law enforcement officer from the same unit before gunning down him in a sudden and frantic move, the report quoted a statement by Alborz provincial police as saying.

It added that the conscript then fatally shot a citizen nearby and stole his car, but later died when fleeing toward western provinces as the car rolled over due to the police shooting.

The statement said investigations were underway to determine the causes of the incident.
