    Is there only one road in Karachi? That is what your original sentence suggests by saying "on Karachi's road". As 5jj suggested, "on/in the streets of Karachi" is far more likely if the gunfire is happening in several places. If it's only happening in one road, then use "There is gunfire on/in [name of street]" or "There is gunfire on a street in Karachi".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    "There is gunfire on the Karachi road" is possible. The road from Hyderabad to Karachi, for example.
