Wedding turns into bloodbath
KUCHING: Five wedding guests were killed and nine others injured when a man went on a shooting spree during a reception at a longhouse in Song district in central Sarawak on Wednesday.
Song police chief ASP Entusa Iman said the 36-year-old Indonesian, who later surrendered, suddenly opened fire on the crowd at 9pm.
The man fired four shots from a shotgun into the Rh. Enchan longhouse in Ulu Enkabau, Katibas, at the ruai or public gallery, where the guests had gathered for the reception. He then went into the gallery and fired another shot.
The longhouse is a 10-minute ride by longboat from here and another one hour on foot.
ASP Entusa said he was told that some youths had persistently teased the man, who was married to the longhouse chief’s daughter, over his statelessness during the Gawai Dayak celebrations over the past four days.
“Probably he could not take it anymore,” he told Bernama. The suspect has three daughters.
ASP Entusa could not tell if any of the youths were among those killed or injured in the incident.
“The bride and the bridegroom are safe,” he added.
The victims, all men, were identified as Paulus Ilus, 43, his brother Galau Ilus, 27, Jimbun Ngindang and Meluda Emin, both 30, and 34-year-old0 Gram George.
Their bodies have been sent to Kapit Hospital. The injured, including a nine-year-old girl and two women, were admitted to hospital.
