The past few years have brought an increase in foreign influence in Cambodia, often with disastrous results. In particular, the city of Sihanoukville has become the “Wild West,” with the murder of two people at a casino last Saturday adding to Cambodia’s difficulties.
Six people got into a heated discussion inside a hotel room of the casino, according to police. Things turned chaotic when two individuals pulled out guns and began shooting. When the smoke cleared, two men were dead, and another was injured.
The shooters fled the scene, but soon after the incident occurred, police arrived and began taking statements and reviewing surveillance camera footage. They identified the criminals, and the manhunt was on.
