Soldier sought over shooting
November 30, 2017
Police are hunting a military officer and son of a high-ranking government official over a Phnom Penh music venue shooting in which a DJ was seriously injured.

The shooting took place early yesterday at the Rock Centre in Chamkarmon district’s Tonle Bassac commune.

District military police officer Ly Vireak said the suspect was Duch Sovannareth, the son of a secretary of state at the Ministry of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection.

The victim was Bear Sam Oeun, 33, a DJ at the Rock Centre. He was injured in the right leg and hand.

Mr Vireak said that according to witnesses and military police investigations, the suspect and two friends went on Tuesday to the Rock Centre. They drank and danced until early on Wednesday.

They got into an argument with Mr Sam Oeun for not playing the music they requested.
“During the argument, the suspect took a pistol and fired five bullets towards the floor, in front of the victim’s legs to threaten him,” Mr Vireak said.“The bullets hit the victim’s leg and hand.

“After the shooting, the suspect and his friends fled. One of the suspect group was arrested by military police,” he said. Based on the answers of the arrested man, military police identified the gunman as Mr Sovannareth.

It was early reported that Duch Sovannareth, the son of a secretary of state at the Ministry of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection,was arrested and that he is currently in detention. The site of the shooting, the Rock Entertainment Centre, belongs to the well-known Royal Group, and the CEO is Oknha Kith Thieng.
It is therefore not surprising that Lieutenant General Sok Khemrin said today that the police are taking this case extremely seriously.

Possible to modify/peronalise any firearm nowadays easily.

Dick Cheney had one made that makes it look like an accident.

I think the one on the left might be some kind of C100 / CZ75 copy, no idea on the right.

The one on the right looks like it might be some sort of Sig Sauer. Where do they get these guns from?
