Court charges man for drunken shooting spree

A man who drunkenly fired shots in the air outside a Sery Souphorn city beer garden and karaoke bar early on Tuesday morning was charged yesterday by the Banteay Meanchey Provincial Court with illegal use and discharge of a gun.

Provincial police deputy chief Men Pirom said Kem Sreang, 43, was detained on Tuesday by military police after he fired two shots in the Kuodot shopping mall beer garden and a third bullet in front of the karaoke bar with a K-54 handgun.

“This is the first case of free fire in Banteay Meanchey this year,” Pirom said. No one was injured during his spree. Banteay Meanchey court representa­t-ives could not be reached for comment.
