According to the state police, the deceased included two militants and two civilians. However, the locals alleged all four were civilians.
The police recovered hand grenades and AK-47 rifles from the slain militants.
The firing comes hours before a music concert by legendary musician Zubin Mehta here.
Around 1,500 people are likely to attend his Ehsaas-e-Kashmir concert, while it will broadcast live in as many as 50 countries.
