Ara: An 18-year-old boy was killed and two other members of a marriage party were injured after being hit by bullets during celebratory firing at a wedding in a village of Bihar's Bhojpur district.

The incident occurred late last night at a house in Chhauva village when one Sanjay Ram opened fire from his licensed weapon to celebrate the rituals ahead of the departure of his brother's marriage party, District Magistrate Virendra Prasad Yadav said.

The celebratory firing soon turned tragic as the bullets hit three persons who were rushed to Sadar hospital, where one of them succumbed to injuries, he said, adding the deceased has been identified as Rajkumar.

The other two injured have been admitted to Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) as their condition is stated to be serious.

Yadav said the bridegroom's brother escaped with his licensed weapon.
