Hyderabad police arrested a 19-year-old video star who allegedly fired multiple celebratory gunshots in the air at a party.

According to reports, the incident happened on May 5 when MD Shoeb fired 12 shots at his friend’s birthday party. His friends videoed it and proudly circulated it among their friends on social media. The video quickly went viral, attracting the attention of the local police on Monday.

South Zone Additional Deputy Police Commissioner K Babu Rao was quoted as saying:  “Whether licensed or not, a weapon cannot be used without need and use of it in a public place is also banned under the Arms Act. We have registered a case against Shoeb under the Arms Act. His interrogation may give us clues about the others involved. The weapon owner will also be booked.”
