The shooting terror in the South Tangerang area is still mysterious. The perpetrator was also on the hunt by the police.
South Tangerang Police Chief Adjunct Senior Commissioner Iman Setiawan said that this mysterious shooting terror occurred every Saturday night until early Sunday. At least this shooting occurred in the last three weeks.
“There were several victims who reported, 7 victims reported to the Polres-Polsek that they were shot using bullets,” said Iman as quoted by detik.com, Saturday, August 8.
Most of the victims were shot by airgun pellets while crossing the road and using motorbikes.
“So it is suspected that the perpetrator randomly chose the victim. The average victim used a motorcycle and rode it on the road,” said Iman.
This case was then reported to the local Police and South Tangerang Police. Based on data compiled by the South Tangerang Police, the mysterious shootings occurred in 3 areas of Serpong, South Tangerang, once at Debris Bridge, Cisauk, Tangerang Regency, 2 times in the Pagedangan area and 1 time in Kelapa Gading area, Tangerang Regency.
A number of victims had injuries on their body parts. The incident was said to have taken place in the last few weeks. Generally, the victims do not immediately realize that their body is hit by a nose bullet.
From the bullets used, the police suspect that the shooter used an air rifle or an airsoft gun.
“It could be from an air rifle or an airsoft gun,” added Iman.
The police suspect that the action was carried out by the same group, with a number of more than one person. When in action, they target victims on the streets at random from night to early morning.
The police have had the identity of the perpetrator. Currently, the perpetrator is still being hunted by the police.
