Gunmen on a motorcycle shot dead a policeman tasked to guard a post office in Giza's Badrashin city, a statement by the interior ministry read.
Spokesperson for the Ambulance Authority Ahmed Al-Ansary confirmed to Ahram Online that an attack took place in Badrshin. However, he couldn’t confirm if there were other casualties.
The identity of the assailants was not immediately known, according to the interior ministry.
In a similar incident late November, unknown gunmen shot dead four members of the Egyptian security forces on a road near the Giza pyramids, south of Cairo.
Hundreds of police and army personnel have been killed in targeted bombings, drive-by shootings and other attacks orchestrated by Islamist militant groups since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
