A prominent bodyguard to King Salman, Maj. Gen. Abdulaziz al-Fagham, has been shot and killed in the Red Sea city of Jiddah in what authorities referred to as a personal dispute, Saudi state television reported.

Al-Fagham was “the bodyguard of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques,” the honorific given to Saudi kings, as stated in a one-sentence tweet posted by a state television channel. The post spawned comments with Saudis’ condolences for al-Fagham, with netizens publishing pictures of him similarly guarding late King Abdullah.

The details haven’t so far been revealed, as the country’s Interior Ministry has yet to comment on the matter.

In mid-2017, King Salman bin Abdul Aziz issued a royal order for the promotion of Abdul Aziz al-Ghafm (an exceptional promotion) to the rank of brigade.
