27 January 2020
UPDATE: The shooting appears to have been a drunken accident. A group of drunk men were sitting in a pool hall, drinking and passing a loaded pistol around, when, by accident or stupidity, the gun went off and hit the victim.
The man who shot the firearm left the scene immediately, and the victim was taken to the Khmer-Soviet Hospital. His days are not in danger, and he has now filed a complaint with the police.
