Man Shot on Dance Floor of Popular Nightclub in Capital

by Buth Kimsay | May 9, 2016

Police say they are searching for a gunman who entered Phnom Penh’s popular Rock nightclub in the early hours of Friday morning and shot another man in the chest and shoulder, leaving him seriously injured.

Eng Sorphea, chief of the municipal police’s serious crimes bureau, said officers had already identified the suspect but were relying on the victim’s account of the shooting, as they were not allowed into the Rock Entertainment Center to investigate the scene.

“We are searching to arrest the suspect who fled after shooting two times, causing one man to be badly injured,” he said, identifying the victim as Mot Makara, 28.
Mr. Sorphea said the suspect, whom he declined to identify, had called the victim and told him to come outside the nightclub but that the victim had ignored the request and continued dancing inside.

“The victim simply let the suspect wait a few minutes, then the suspect entered and shot the victim two times,” he said.

The bureau chief said officers who responded to the shooting were not allowed to enter the club, which is owned by powerful businessman Kith Meng. He refused to say why Rock had the authority to prevent police from investigating a crime scene.

Ok, VIP owner. Makes more sense. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kith_Meng
A receptionist at the club said that all media outlets had been told not to report on the shooting, declining to give her name or comment further.
Whoops. :?

I don't think so, Rock is pretty far away from St 130, it's down near Boeng Trabek at the southern end of Monivong.

i was with my friend at the time and it was his girlfriend that was texting him about it as we was out having some happy hour cocktails, must have only been about 7-8pm i think,
from what i remember, according to the texts, some guy went into the Indochina 2 hotel at the bottom of 130 and started firing a few rounds off, not sure if anyone was hurt/killed though

Any more news about that ? Indochine 2 hotel is in the heart of tourist central on riverside. It used to be a very respectable place to stay.

All these guys with guns should have military training like this guy. You must be good to do it twice.
