Victims claim suspect shot them both in back

A dance-floor shouting match turned into a street-side shooting for two unlucky men in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district on Sunday.

As is so often the case, one of the victims had stepped on the shoe of a local ne’er-do-well at the disco, prompting an argument.

When apologies were not forthcoming, the suspect followed them home and shot both men in their backs.

They survived and provided authorities with a description of the suspect. Police are still looking for him. KOH SANTEPHEAP
