Saudi news agency SPA, reporting the Wednesday incident on Friday, identified the man as Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Shehri, according to Reuters
According to Saudi state media reports, Al-Shehri was suspected of being a member of a domestic terrorism cell that coordinated the 2015 suicide bombing of a mosque in Abha frequented by security force members.
Eleven members of the security forces and four Bangladeshi nationals were killed in the attack, and 33 people were injured, state media reported at the time.
The Saudi Arabian government named Al-Shehri in early 2016 as one of six Saudi nationals wanted in connection with the bombing.
Saudi Arabia was the scene of a series of large-scale militant attacks in the 2000s, including on security forces and Western targets.
Such attacks were carried out by Daesh, Al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups.
