Ex-police officer held in shooting

A former police officer in Oddar Meanchey’s Anlong Veng district was arrested on Sunday after shooting and killing an 11-year-old boy and injuring two others, according to Pen An, Anlung Veng’s O’Chhin Chhean village chief.

Pen An said the suspect was intoxicated and seized a district police officer’s gun before firing  into a group of vendors selling food and wine, killing 11-year-old Vong Sochea instantly and injuring his father and a woman standing nearby.

He added that the woman was the intended target because she did not love the suspect and was engaged to be married to another man. The suspect will be sent to provincial court on Wednesday.
