Police in Sharjah say a video that has gone viral showing an incident that happened at a shooting range is not from the UAE.

It was assumed that the clip, which shows a man shooting himself, was taken at a venue in the emirate.

However, authorities have confirmed that the graphic video was shot in a different country.

They've also warned social media users not to spread rumours and to verify videos before sharing them.
