Policeman shot for supporting the losing Italian side in Euro 2012


A policeman is fighting for his life after being shot during a telecast of the Euro 2012 final at a pub in Nusa Bestari, near here.

The 24-year-old constable from Sarawak was rushed to the intensive care unit of the Sultanah Aminah Hospital after being hit by four bullets in his abdomen in the 4am incident yesterday.

He was said to be in a huff when Italy, the team he was cheering for, was losing the game against Spain.

An argument erupted between him and another football fan, who allegedly tried to stop the young policeman from drawing his pistol to settle the dispute.

In the struggle that ensued, the gun discharged a series of shots that hit the victim - NST
