G9 Family and Allies gang members exchanged gunfire with an opposing gang in Bel Air, Port-au-Prince Sunday evening. G9 was allegedly retaliating after two members of their gang were killed.

Bel Air is almost entirely empty of regular residents after G9 members allegedly set houses on fire and killed at least 21 people in a series of attacks there in September. Residents from nearby neighborhoods panicked and asked the police for help. 

It was not known whether police went to the scene. No injuries were reported. Source
