Fun with gun ends in tragedy for friends

A police officer alleged to have accidentally shot his friend dead at a party fled from his village in Takeo province’s Kiri Vong district after the shooting on Monday night, a police official said yesterday. Officer Dos Toris killed his friend Sieng Set when a gun they were playing with at a party in Poh discharged into the 32-year-old, then ricocheted into Leang Khom, smashing his knee cap, Preah Bat Chonchum commune chief Long Sareth said yesterday. “They took out the gun to play with it and [thought they] emptied all the bullets. They did not know a bullet was still in the gun,” he said. “When [Dos Toris] found out afterward [that Sieng Set had died], he fled the village. This is illegal use of a weapon.”
