Guard vs guard: Row over access leads to shooting

A 52-year-old security guard who allegedly shot another company’s guard with an assault rifle following a verbal dispute in Kratie province’s Sambo district was arrested yesterday, police said.

Sambo district police chief Bun Chhoeun said the dispute, which took place on Saturday, flared up after the alleged gunman, Sorn Yong, refused to stop at a road block in Kbal Damrei commune manned by security guards for Global Ag­ricultural Development.

“The security guards did not allow him to pass, so they had a verbal dispute,” he said.

Sorn Yong drove through the road block to the cassava plantation he was employed to protect, which lies within Global Agricultural Development’s economic land concession and fetched his AK-47, Bun Chhoeun said.

“He shot six bullets into the air and then fired three times at the guard station, injuring one guy.”

Phal Phat, 29, was sent to Kratie provincial hospital with gunshot wounds to his arms.
