Police in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang have recently arrested a local man who is believed to supply the gun used in a homicide in the locality.
They suspected 27-year-old Tran Minh Quan, from the provicial capital of My Tho, of supplying the gun used in the shooting death of 15-year-old Huynh Bao Sang earlier this month.
At around 10:00 pm on March 13, Sang was chased and gunned down by two motorbikers while traveling with a friend on Dinh Bo Linh Street in My Tho.
Sang was brought to a nearby hospital but succumbed to his wounds shortly after.
A preliminary investigation revealed that Sang and his friends had had a conflict with a group of strangers earlier in the evening, including Nguyen Ngoc Ty, 17, and Nguyen Thanh Manh, 21.
Ty and Manh later turned themselves in for Sang’s death, surrendering a rubber bullet gun, a bullet, and four shell casings to police officers.
Manh said that he had bought the gun online.
An initial examination determined that the gun was used as a support tool.
