Bandung Police chief Sr. Comr. Winarto has confirmed that a police member shot dead a man on Jl. Babakan Siliwangi early on Friday morning.
Winarto said he hoped the action would have a deterrent effect amid a crackdown on street crime in Bandung.
“We took a firm measure against a street criminal,” he added.
He said the dead suspect was identified as AM, aka Odon, a veteran street criminal. He said Odon was shot because he resisted arrest.
“He tried to hurt the officer,” Winarto said.
The police said they had recently received reports of street crimes near the Bandung Institute of Technology. (evi)
