Municipal policeman charged with double attempted murder

The police have charged a 42-year member of the municipal police in Vysoké Mýto, eastern Bohemia, of double attempted murder. The municipal police officer allegedly shot two people with his private gun, killing one and seriously wounding the other. The incident occurred after the man, along with two associates, was denied entry into a disco in the town on Saturday night. The men sprayed pepper into the establishment and ran away. The officer then shot at two security staffers who pursued them; he was allegedly drunk during the incident. If convicted, the man could be sentenced to up 20 years in jail, or receive life sentence.
