Witnesses reported hearing multiple blasts and gunshots before responding police officers killed all three assailants. Amir Shaikh, the Karachi police chief, said officers shot the attackers before they could enter the consulate building. Police identified the two civilian casualties as a father and son who were at the consulate to obtain visas.
