    ANN/VIET NAM NEWS – Twenty-nine people have been arrested after a daytime shoot-out on the streets of Phu Quoc left two people dead and four others seriously injured on Thursday morning.

    Police said rival gangs clashed over a dispute concerning a plot of land. Police have also seized a 16-seater vehicle, two guns, 19 bullets and a fake stamp bearing the seal of an authority.

    Deputy director of Kiên Giang Province Police Colonel Tran Van Cung said yesterday the shooting was deemed to be a result of a land conflict between two rival groups of people.

    Police said they are launching legal proceedings of this “murder” and “disturbing public order” case. One of the gangs is said to be headed by Vo Van Luong (aka Hai Luong), and Bùi Minh Trung (aka Trung Ca Mau).

    The other group is headed by Khuc Van Doai.

    At 11.20am on Thursday, Hai Luong’s gang with more than 50 people travelling in eight cars came to Doai’s land plot at Ben Tram Hamlet to settle a dispute.

    During the scuffle, some members of Hai Luong’s gang are alleged to have opened fire and chased their rivals.

    After the shooting, the suspects quickly left the scene in their cars.

    Currently, the police are urgently investigating the case, searching to detain the rest of the suspects, and consolidating the case files to prosecute those involved in the shooting.
