UPDATE
Crime of Passion Led to Duel and Shootout
Image
The shooting was a crime of passion, and the motive was jealousy; both men were in love with the same woman, so they decided to have a duel. Unfortunately, for the victim (who already had a wife), his rival did not play fair, but shot him first without warning.

The direct translation of the event from Khmer news retains the passion of the act:
"The power of lust for women turned into an outbreak of actual war, causing a man who already had a wife to shoot his rival to death. Love can turn people from smart to stupid, love can really destroy friendships if we lack control and consideration, love can really turn friendly relationships into bloody wars ; these things have already happened in society."
Image
According to Lt. Col. Lim Puthyla, Deputy Commissioner for Criminal Planning of Battambang Province, this story, prior to the explosion, was not different from what was shared on social media, namely the victim arranged a meet-up with the gunman to shoot each other, because the victim was angry with the gunman, who had fallen in love with a woman that he was also in love with.

However, when the time came for the shoot-out, the victim arrived first at the meeting place, followed suddenly by the arrival of the gunman who pulled out a gun and took one shot at a time, without giving the victim a chance to shoot even once.
During the fighting, two other people were injured.

The dead and injured include:
1. Roeun Samrong, 32 years old, in Kantout Village, Sangkat Kdol Daun Teav, Battambang City, was injured twice and died on arrival at the hospital. Already has a wife and children at home, but if anyone dared to touch his ex-girlfriend , he was ready to shoot them.
The bystanders, friends of the victim:
2-Sar Daro, 32 years old, in Prek Chdor Village, Peam Ek Commune, Ek Phnom District, with minor injuries;
3-27-year-old Te Panha, from Prek Mohatep village, Svay Por commune, Battambang city, with minor injuries.
Image
According to sources at the scene, following verbal wars on social media, both parties met up at a nightclub, where before the incident, they left the club and made an appointment to leave the nightclub to go to find a place to have a shoot-out. However, the gunman arrived by car at the meeting place, and he immediately opened fire on his rival and his group of 4-5 friends who were waiting there. He shot about ten times, killing the other man and injuring two of his friends.
Image
After the incident, the specialized police force carefully searched and identified the gunman and arrested him in Banteay Meanchey province on the afternoon of December 08, 2022; so far, he has only been identified as Choy, and his accomplice is named Tong.
To be continued.

Again we are reminded the phrase 'brains of a dead sparrow' applies to the vast majority of Khmer men.

Love is a very strong bond in Cambodia, take care if you mess with it. Pathetic yes but not in Cambodians thinking.
