Police kill alleged gold thief at market

A man who allegedly robbed a gold merchant was shot and killed by police after a brief stand-off in Kampong Cham province’s Chamkar Leu district. Chamkar Leu district police chief Ed Dara said the alleged thief, Morn March, was shot by police officers after he robbed a gold merchant and allegedly tried to attack police officers with a knife during an attempted arrest. “He was shot dead by police after he tried to use a large knife to attack our officers attempting to make an arrest,” he said. Police confiscated the stolen gold and returned it to the merchant at Chamkar Leu Market.
