Robbery suspect shot dead while trying to steal police car

Robbery suspect accidentally shot dead in Takeo
22 March 2018
Bati district police in Takeo province said a robber was shot and killed while attempting to steal an officer’s vehicle in Trapaing Sap commune yesterday.

Bati district police said that three suspects attempted to steal a vehicle belonging to police officer Nam Sophoan.

To stop the three suspects from escaping, police said they fired warning shots into the ground as they drove off on a motorbike, accidentally striking one of them and killing him. One other man was arrested and the other escaped, police added.

Mr Sophoan said he was asleep inside his police vehicle when the suspects attempted to steal the car.

“I was asleep inside the car while waiting for my father in law at 1am,” he said. “At about 2am the suspects were attempting to open the car door, but I woke up and the suspects fled when they saw me.”

Mr Sophoan then called for backup on his walkie-talkie. Commune police came to his aid and hid and set up to ambush the three suspects.

When confronted by the police , the suspects attempted to flee and the warning shots were fired.

Not the sharpest knives apparently, however, firing warning shots into the ground and killed one needs perhaps some more explanation...
I actually don't give a flying fuck, furthermore nice to meet you all here! :thumb:

That is because he was on the ground just where the bullet hit. Easy answer.

Well at least the cop didn't fire up into the air where the real damage would have been done had it hit God.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
