Last night’s shooting, the police say, was caused by a trigger happy cop suspected to have been drunk.

“Last evening around 7:50 pm, one of our  colleagues in the name of Otim Michael who was guarding Jetset Bureau, while he was leaving duty and going back home fired bullets in the air,’’ said Aswa region police spokesman, Jimmy Patrick Okema.

“It was quite an unfortunate incident.  The policeman was drunk. That is a fact. He fired seven bullets in the air. We have confirmed that because we have also recovered the seven cartridges,” Okema adds.

Otim is being detained at Gulu Central Police awaiting being arraigned before the police disciplinary committee. Otim faces possible dismissal from the force for misconduct.

Last night’s shooting comes only days after a private security guard shot dead a Gulu university don.
