In a Five-Car Chase, Guns Were Fired, the Bullets Ricocheted and Injured a Couple

Caught, in the crossfires, at the wrong place, at the wrong time! From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A couple in the midnight hours of last night, rode together on a scooter, waited for the lights to change in Sinchuang District of Hsinbei City, suddenly, guns went off, the couple were both, injured by bullets that ricocheted; the police chased the leads, and arrested five men including Lee, found that the two groups had, started chasing and gunning each other down on the streets, because, a member had, gone in to the wrong karaoke bar room, the police is currently, chasing other possible suspects.

At 1:56 in the morning last night, the thirty-one year-old man, Lin took his girlfriend, Jiang (age 23), waited for the lights at the MRT Chien-Zhuang Station, suddenly, the cars approached them from behind, then, three loud bangs, the five cars left one by one. Both of the couple felt that sudden pain, as they parked by the side of the road to check themselves, Lin’s thigh, and Jiang’s calf, were grazed by ricocheted bullets, they’d gone to the hospital to get treated, then, called the police.

The police reviewed the street surveillance, zoomed in on the cars, and started chasing them, in the karaoke bar located on Zhonghwa Road in Sinchuang, they’d, found the three men who were, driving in the cars, then, made two arrests later.

The preliminary investigations showed, that the shooting occurred, in the midnight hours of the 19th, after a fight broke out at the karaoke bar, the two parties met up for confrontation afterwards. The 23-year-old Lee, and four of his friends rode out on two cars to the confrontation, on the way, Lee found the three cars that belonged to the others, started chasing them, to the location where the shots were fired, the other car suddenly, opened fire three times as Lee was waiting for the lights, and, one of the bullets ricocheted off the pavement, and grazed the couple on the scooter, injured them both.

And so, the couple that were “shot” were, in the wrong place, AT the wrong time, and this still just showed, how there’s, a need, for stricter gun control laws, because you do NOT want people with guns, running loose, and shooting at each other, injuring, the innocent bystanders, would you? I wouldn’t, think so!
