Rock Club shooter in PP court

The son of a high-ranking customs official was arrested yesterday afternoon over a shooting incident at a popular Phnom Penh nightclub owned by tycoon Kith Meng, leaving two injured.

Major Sok Darith, deputy chief of the Municipal Serious Penal Police Unit, said that 24-year-old Keo Vitou, the son of Customs Department chief Keo Sokheang, was arrested for allegedly firing 11 rounds from an AK-47 into the Rock Entertainment Centre in Boeng Trabek commune in the early hours of Sunday.

“He was arrested after he allegedly fired many bullets into Rock Entertainment Centre,” Darith said.

He added that Vitou was sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday evening.

Darith said Sokheang, his brother-in-law and their bodyguard were also being questioned by police yesterday but declined to give further details.

Municipal court officials could not be reached for comment.

According to police, the incident happened after Vitou, Sokheang’s brother-in-law and their bodyguard got into a dispute with another group.

Police have seized the rifle and the Lexus driven away from the scene as evidence.
