The Foreign Legion of Legian

Bali Police Seeking Two Foreign Men Who Went on Shooting Spree in Legian, Kuta

(3/1/2013) The Kuta-Legian area of Bali added another layer of unwanted notoriety when two gun-toting men, believed to be foreign nationals, shot out the windows of a car parked on Jalan Sri Rama in Legian on Wednesday, February 2, 2013.

Eye witnesses to the incident said that two “foreign men” on a motorcycle, both of whom appeared to be intoxicated, shot out the windows of a Honda Jazz sedan and a taxi parked on the road’s shoulder.

Quoted in Kompas.com, Andi Purwanto, one of the eyewitnesses, said: “there was a noise of ‘tak, tak’ twice and then the two men weaved off to the south.”

The head of the Kuta police precinct, I Putu Gede Dedy Ujiana, explained, “The exact type of weapon used and the motive remain a mystery; the perpetrators are still being sought by police.”

There were no human casualties in the incident.

At the scene of the shooting police recovered evidence that indicates an air pistol or air rifle was used. Police continue to interview eyewitnesses and speak with the owners of the damaged cars in an effort to apprehend those responsible.
