Ambulance sirens were heard immediately after the gunfire, according to social news aggregator Storyful, and Libyan activists angered by the accidental deaths started a hashtag to try to end the practice, #notocelebullets
The celebratory gunfire can be heard in this video footage of demonstrations last night in Tripoli:
