Currently, both individuals who attacked Salman Khan's Galaxy Apartments residence are on the run, according to police sources.

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's residence at Galaxy Apartments in Mumbai became the scene of a security breach on April 14. Two unidentified assailants on a motorcycle fired multiple rounds outside the actor's home, triggering concern and swift action from authorities. No injuries were reported. However, the gravity of the situation prompted immediate action from Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, who assured Khan of heightened security measures. The Mumbai Police launched an investigation into the incident, registering an FIR under Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code and 3(25) section of the Arms Act.

Speaking to CNN News18, Salim Khan, writer and Salman’s father, reacted to the incident. He said, “There is nothing to tell. They just want publicity, there is no need to worry.”

According to a report in NDTV, sources have revealed that two gunmen are reportedly affiliated with gangster Lawrence Bishnoi’s gang. Anmol Bishnoi, Lawrence Bishnoi's brother, claimed responsibility in an online post, describing the attack as a "preview" and issuing a warning to the Bollywood actor. However, the authenticity of the claim is yet to be verified independently.

One of the suspects, Vishal, is believed to have ties with Rohit Godara, a notorious member of the Bishnoi gang implicated in various violent crimes. CCTV footage revealed that the assailants wore caps and carried backpacks while firing towards Khan's residence. Descriptions of their attire include one suspect in a white t-shirt with a black jacket and denim pants, and the other in a red t-shirt with denim pants. Prior to the attack, reports state that the suspects checked out the place near Galaxy Apartments. After abandoning their motorcycle, suspected to be stolen, near Mount Mary Church in Bandra, the assailants reportedly managed to evade capture by taking a rickshaw to Bandra railway station. Currently, both individuals are on the run, according to police sources.

Following the incident, Salman Khan’s family members Arbaaz Khan and wife Sshura Khan, Sohail Khan, Arpita Khan Sharma, Alvira Agnihotri and more visited Salman’s residence.
