Two police officers arrested for shooting

Two police officers from the Ministry of Interior were arrested in connection with an illegal shooting in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district.
Ya Kim E, chief of the Phnom Penh Military Police, identified the suspects as First Lieutenant Teth Noy, 35, and Second Lieutenant Nhim Sok Kheng, 35, both with the Ministry of Interior police.
The two officers were arrested on Monday at about 11:15pm in front of the Heng Heng Beer Garden Shop in Sen Sok’s Teuk Thla commune, Ya Kim E said.
“Both of the officers were very drunk. They were arrested while they were illegally firing their guns after having many drinks,” he said.
Military police confiscated the two officers’ weapons and sent for temporary detention to Phnom Penh Municipal Police headquarters for questioning. He said they will remain there pending further investigation of the incident.
