Shooter scare at market

A 54-year-old man was arrested in Oddar Meanchey province yesterday after climbing onto the roof of a market and opening fire, said By Pengnguon, Trapaing Prasat district police chief.

Suspect Pharn Than, armed with an AK-47 rifle, sent frightened buyers and sellers running from the building, but was later coaxed down and arrested by police.

Authorities are “seeking intervention” from mental health professionals, he said.
