Sen Sok has always been the shooting capital of PP as far as I'm aware - I got driven through a gang hold up leaving a wedding there about 12 years back. Living out in Toul Kork right on the edge of Sen Sok I'd quite often hear a gunshot in the night, probably once a fortnight back in those days.

No doubt, it has cleaned up immensely since the bad old days. But if there's going to be a rare gun shot/ricochet, chances are it'll be somewhere around there late at night. :hattip:

Those Guys were either pro’s or lucky. Killing one while driving a motorbike with Just one shot... Steady hands and great nerves needed.

Correction, it seems there was one shooter who fired three shots. (Not three men who fired one shot.)

Teacher gunned down in Phnom Penh

Police are currently looking to identify a person suspected of murdering a high school teacher in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district on Tuesday.

The incident took place at about midnight on a quiet road in Khmuonh commune in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district.

Captain Chuon Savuth, a district penal police officer, identified the victim as Roeun Ratana, 33, a teacher who taught at Tuol Prasath High School. The victim had a wife and two kids and lived in Sen Sok V village in Sen Sok district’s Khmuonh commune.

Cap Savuth said the victim was shot three times on his stomach and that his body was found near his motorbike in Khmuonh commune.

He noted that a witness, who lived nearby the scene of the crime, told him the victim was driving on his motorbike alone that evening.

“While the victim was driving on his motorbike, an unidentified person who was driving on a separate motorbike, chased after him, fired three bullets at the victim, which killed the victim on the spot,” Cap Savuth said.

Missus said something about his wife hired the guy to kill her husband. Something about their marriage wasn’t getting along. He would do things she didn’t like such as scold her ex boyfriend. She has since fled and the cops are searching for her.
