The 37-year-old cameraman affiliated with Ehadnama media news, who also worked for many other media outlets including Geo News, was shot dead in front of his home in the north western city of Dera Ismail Khan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province.
Unidentified gunmen riding on a motorcycle shot Qais Javed multiple times around his stomach before fleeing the scene. He was rushed to a nearby hospital in Dera Ismail Khan but died on the way. Police are yet to make any arrests.
No group claimed responsibility for the murder, but the region has a history of militant attacks on journalists and people from religious minorities. Javed belonged to the Christian community.
