Suspect Arrested Due to Persuasion by Veteran Squad Leader 高醫診間槍案破案 傳資深警勸說投案

A man was shot dead in broad daylight while waiting to receive treatment at Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital on Aug. 17. The police arrested the shooter four hours later. Residents are concerned that the suspect was able to walk into the hospital carrying an unconcealed gun.


Kaohsiung City councilors belonging to the Kuomintang hold up signs as they criticize the Kaohsiung City Government for allowing the city to turn into a city of bullets. On Aug. 17, a man was shot dead in broad daylight while waiting to receive treatment at Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital over a financial dispute. The shooter was able to enter the hospital with an unconcealed gun, leading to concerns about illegal guns and public safety. On Aug. 14, a Kaohsiung construction site caved in, affecting nearby buildings and making them too dangerous to live in. The KMT caucus held a press conference on Aug. 18 to criticize the city government's severe dereliction of duty.

Tung Yen-chen, Whip, KMT Kaohsiung City Council Caucus: “The suspect killed a person in broad daylight in a hospital. There have also been gun battles between police and criminals in the outskirts and numerous fires. Even the one hour of rain yesterday caused streets in Renwu to flood. This city has become unlivable.”

The caucus said the city government needs to address several issues including law and order. In response, the Democratic Progressive Party's caucus said investigations into the construction site and hospital shooting incidents absolved the city government of any blame.

Huang Wen-i, Director-General, DPP Kaohsiung City Council Caucus: “The suspect brought a gun from New Taipei City down here and used it. So if KMT councilors want to criticize the proliferation of guns, then they should direct their criticism at Hou Yu-ih.”

The DPP caucus demanded that the KMT caucus stop smearing the city government and accused it of ignoring the hard work of the police. The police were able to catch the suspect in the hospital shooting four hours later because a veteran squad leader had a relationship of trust with the suspect.

Cheng Yu-sheng, Captain, Investigation Brigade, Sanmin First Precinct, KCPD: “The suspect had been processed by the squad leader surnamed Li several times in the past, so they were on friendly terms. The suspect contacted the squad leader of his own accord, and the squad leader was able to convince him to turn himself in.”

The two party caucuses were able to agree on one point, which was zero tolerance for shootings. They urged the central and local governments to do more to eliminate guns.

 

 

舉牌痛批高雄變慶記之都,17日高醫候診間因財務糾紛發生槍殺案,造成1人死亡,雖然警方火速破案,但嫌犯攜槍公然進出醫院,引發民眾黑槍橫行疑慮,又加上14日高雄建案工地塌陷、牽連民宅,國民黨議會黨團18日上午開記者會痛批高市府失職。

國民黨高雄市議會黨團總召童燕珍表示:「有凶嫌在光天化日之下在醫院裡殺人,郊區又發生警匪槍戰、失火事件頻傳,連昨天1小時的雨都讓高雄的路上仁武的路上淹水,這是什麼宜居城市呢。」

藍營要求市府正視治安等問題,面對國民黨的抨擊,民進黨團上午反擊,建案公安及高醫槍擊案,經事後調查都非市府責任。

民進黨高雄市議會黨團幹事長黃文益表示:「(嫌犯)從新北市帶(槍)下來開,所以如果國民黨的市議員要去譴責槍枝氾濫,他應該去找侯友宜。」

民進黨批評藍營,不該為抹黑市府忽略警方辛勞,因警方4小時內逮到嫌犯,歸功於資深小隊長與嫌犯建立的信任關係。

高市警三民一分局偵查隊長鄭育昇表示:「(嫌犯)之前有被這個李小隊長辦過好幾次,所以跟他大概有一點交情,他就有主動跟小隊長聯絡,那小隊長就有勸他,也是想說既然事情發生了那就出面來面對。」

藍綠對高醫槍擊案看法不同,但也一致表示槍擊案應該0容忍,呼籲中央及地方政府要更重視肅槍,別讓民眾生活在不安中。
