Liputan6.com, Sumba Barat – A drunk police officer in West Sumba accidentally shot a civilian. Both men were reportedly under the influence of alcohol.
The tragedy unfolded when the victim, Ferdinandus Lango Bili, alongside the police with initials ER were having a duck-grilling party and drinking on Saturday (7/1/2023). Other policemen were also present.
The victim, who was allegedly drunk, pointed a knife toward the police ER. He also challenged the police to shoot him.
