A probe has been launched and the suspects are being traced with the help of CCTV cameras, Industrial Area SP Liaquat Niazi told media men after the incident.
The incident seemed to be motivated by a personal feud, the senior police official added.
Federal Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal was quick to take notice of the incident and termed it a conspiracy to destabilise the country.
The wounded persons have been shifted to PIMS hospital and police started an investigation into the incident. Two of the injured were said to be in critical condition.
No group has claimed the responsibility so far.
