In the Suzak district of the Jalal-Abad region, police officers had to shoot in the air while detaining a suspect.

After receiving information about the illegal carrying of firearms, officers of the Department of Internal Affairs of the Suzak region stopped a VAZ-2121 car. When the policemen checked the driver, several unknown persons began to resist. One of them got into a stopped car and wanted to steal it. At this point, others tried to help the suspect escape. 

As a result, law enforcement officers had to shoot in the air. The man who tried to steal the car was found to have a traumatic pistol with 13 rounds.

The man was previously convicted of murder and is a member of an organized criminal group. A criminal case has been opened against him for hooliganism. He and another resident of the Suzak region were placed in the temporary detention facility.
