DILI (TOP) – The sound of gunfire from a member of the National Police of Timor-Leste not only greatly disturbed residents' bedtime, but claimed the lives of two civilians in Lahane, Dili.

A police officer killed two people in Dili Lahane at midnight Friday. The two people are a father with his biological son.

According to eyewitness Francisco Borges that this case occurred at midnight Friday where a police officer with his pistol went to shoot ordinary people in their homes.

"Mateus de Deus died on the spot because a police pistol bullet pierced his chest, and his son Camilo de Deus died in the emergency room of the national hospital," Borges told The Oe-Kusi Post (TOP) at HNGV, Dili Saturday, June 04, 2021.
