Drinking leads to a cop-on-cop shooting

Drinking leads to a cop-on-cop shooting

You could say one cop was “shooting from the hip” when he fired a bullet into his colleague’s hip during a heated argument at a capital restaurant on Wednesday.

The two men were drinking at different tables when a row began, and the 30-year-old went to punch the off-duty officer.

Pulling out his pistol, the 50-year-old plugged his foe in the pelvis. Srah Chak commune authorities arrived and took both the wounded lad and the temperamental triggerman to the station.
