The Police Shot Five Times Toward a Car Whose Driver Was Intoxicated, Driving Drunk, the Female Passenger Was Killed

An innocent life that’s lost, in the crossfires!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Bade Substation of Taoyuan Police two nights ago, stopped a car that’s, illegally parked on the streets, the driver, Wu was suspected of being intoxicated, refused to get pulled over, in the pursuit, Wu had backed up his car, and rammed into the squad cars twice, the assistant station manager, Tseng of the Bade Substation saw it was an emergency situation, he’d fired off five shots to make the driver stop, the police was firing into the tires, but, three of the shots pierced through the metals, and got into the car, shot the female passenger on the back, Yang, she was injured in her left shoulders, left thigh, she’d died on the way to the hospital.

During the interrogations, Wu (age 50) showed a 0.49 breathalyzer test, Wu stated how he was drinking, and felt that he might get caught for drunk driving that was why he drove away in the car.  Wu is a skilled worker, the deceased, Yang, is a counter clerk of a shop, as she was shot, Yang’s boyfriend was sitting, right next to her.

Because there may have been excessive force used, the district attorney already, interviewed the assistant station manager, Tseng, and, clarified the circumstances under which the gun was, fired, and sent him back to his post afterwards, the two other officers in the same patrol car were also, interviewed as persons of interest, and, sent back after the interviews, the driver, Wu, is being interrogated, overnight.

The Bade Substation stressed, that they will, do everything they possibly can, to help with the final affairs for the family, and, Tseng, the male officer was listed as person of interest, early yesterday evening, the D.A. examined the body of Yang (age 36), an autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow; Yang’s families stated, that if the police were at fault, they are going to go to the courts.

The police chief of Taoyuan, Chen stated, that the city police chief inspector’s office is already looking into the matter, the police will comply with all the details of the requests made, to sort through everything, and if the member of the police was at fault, he will let it go to the laws, and if there’s no fault on the police’s side, he will, support his fellow police man too.

At 11:41 late last night, the Bade Police Substation sent out three officers to patrol the streets, as they passed Jie-Shou Road, Section 2, there was a silver sedan that’s, illegally parked, the police announced on the loud speaker, for the driver to pull over, but the man who drove the car accelerated, and the police were in pursuit.

As the police chased the car, the officers kept using the loud speaker, demanding the driver to pull over, but Wu refused to comply, as he drove to the end of the 422 Alley of Jien-Guo Road, Wu saw that there’s, no escape, and wanted to, back out, he’d, hit the car that’s parked, saw the police behind him, backed into the squad cars twice, and on the third time, it still, didn’t work, the assistant station manager, Tseng got out, fired into the back five times, but Wu still refused to pull over, still drove toward Jie-Shou Road to escape.

The officers, in the end, managed to finally stop Wu’s car two kilometers out, at the Jie-Shou Guan-Fu Intersections, as the officers checked into the car, they’d found Yang shot, by the time the paramedics arrived, Yang was already, out of consciousness, her upper body limp outside the car, as she was rushed into the St. Paul Hospital, because of her severe injuries, she was sent to Changgang Hospital in Linkou, and she’d died from losing too much blood, early yesterday morn she was pronounced, dead.

Based off of understanding, Wu had two other men and one woman in the car with him, all were his friends, two nights ago, the group gathered at the mutton hotpot to gather, had some drinks, they’d broken up the party close to midnight, Yang and her boyfriend originally planned to take a cab, but got into Wu’s sedan, and, ended up getting shot accidentally.

And so, this, is tragic, another, wrong place at the wrong time sort of thing, because if this woman didn’t get into the man’s car, and the man didn’t start speeding up his car, try to evade the police checks, then, she may still be, alive!
