A Chinese national who was allegedly arrested for firing 17 bullets from a gun in Phnom Penh’s Russei Keo district early Wednesday morning had apparently disappeared by the afternoon, with several police officers unable to give his location or the status of the case. Commune police went to the scene of the shooting at the Cam*bodian Ma*chinery Equip*ment Group’s sale yard in Chroy Chang*va shortly after 6 a.m. and found 17 spent bullets cases, commune chief Pich Saroeun said. “We arrested the [suspect] and sent him to the district police headquarters immediately for questioning,” Mr. Saroeun said.
