Police found not guilty of shooting

Two military police were arrested on Monday morning on suspicion of fatally shooting a man and brutally beating a woman with a gun on Sunday night in the capital’s Toul Kork district. Military police spokesman Kheng Kito said the suspects were questioned and authorities decided they were not guilty of shooting 25-year-old Chhroeng Dara. But Kheng Kito said both suspects remain in military police custody. “The two military police were not the ones who shot the victim. The perpetrator escaped,” he said. The shooting took place outside early on Monday morning outside of DJ Station night club after the victims allegedly became involved in an argument with security guards, deputy governor of Toul Kork district Saing Sopheakvichea said. He said the night club would be closed pending further investigation.
