Police Shoot 8 Shots at Car Wheels when Suspect Escapes 男子躲盤查駕車衝撞 警朝車輪開8槍

Kaohsiung Police intercepted a suspicious car on Aug. 9 but the suspect refused to cooperate. The suspect crashed and abandoned his car, took a taxi to avoid security cameras, and was finally arrested at a day rental suite.


“What are you doing? Stop the car!”The police wanted to intercept this man driving the million-dollar car, but he crashed into the car in front and made a drastic turn to avoid being stopped. The police broke the window and pulled over the man yet he struggled loose, during which the police's arm was cut by the glass and was even dragged along for a while. However, the man didn't stop. The police then fired eight shots at the wheels. People witnessed the shocking moment. 

This incident happened at 3 p.m. on Aug. 9. Residents witnessed a police shooting in the parking lot behind Antai Hospital in Xiaogang District, where the suspect man drove away in a car with broken wheels.

Citizen: “Our car was originally parked here, all this time in front of the red line. But it's now pushed away quite a bit.”

Police said that to avoid the security cameras, the man not only abandoned his car but also got in a taxi and took a roundabout way. Still, he was arrested in a day rental suite on the morning of Aug. 10.

Fan Jeng-jia, Detective Supervisor, Xiaogang Precinct, Police Dept., Kaohsiung: “To avoid checking by police then hitting and injuring a member of our police, said police had to muster up the courage and take 8 shots at his car wheel under such emergency circumstances.”

The man was wanted for drug charges; thus he worried about mandatory rehabilitation if arrested so he tried to escape. After investigation, he was transferred to the district prosecutors office pursuant to Narcotics Hazard Prevention Act and Crimes Against Public Service, etc. Meanwhile, the two injured police officers have recovered after treatment and returned to their respective work stations.

 

 

「你要幹嘛!先熄火!」警方想攔查這名駕駛百萬名車的男子,他卻衝撞前方車輛後急轉彎想閃避,員警破窗後一度拉住對方卻被他奮力掙脫,手也遭玻璃割傷,還一度被拖行。男子堅持不停,員警朝著輪胎連開8槍。

事情發生在9日下午3時,民眾目擊在小港區安泰醫院後方的停車場有員警開槍,最後男子駕駛已被射破輪胎的車輛逃離。

民眾說:「我們的車原本停在這裡,一直在紅線這裡前面,被推開那麼大。」

警方表示,男子為了躲避監視器,除了棄車步行,還搭計程車繞路,但10日凌晨在日租套房被逮捕。

高市警小港分局偵查隊長范振家說明:「規避我們警方的查緝,那進而衝撞我們員警,那我們員警在危急狀況之下,就大膽使用警械,朝他的輪胎開了8槍。」

警方表示,男子因毒品案遭通緝,擔心被捕後得勒戒才脫逃。訊後被依毒品危害防制條例、妨害公務等罪嫌移送地檢署偵辦。2名受傷的員警治療後無大礙,已回到工作崗位。
