They collected spent bullet casings from the crime scene and recorded statements of the people who were present outside the mosque at the time of the incident.
A police official said CCTV footage of the spot would also be obtained to trace the culprits.
The Sindh police chief had also taken notice of the firing incident and summoned a report from the SSP central.
