Police in Vietnam are searching for a senior police officer for allegedly shooting dead four gamblers and seriously injuring another over a quarrel in Ho Chi Minh City, authorities said on Thursday.

The incident occurred on Wednesday when 33-year-old police officer Le Quoc Tuan allegedly opened fire at a group of fellow gamblers in the Cu Chi district of Ho Chi Minh City, according to Cu Chi police.

 Four gamblers died at the scene and one is in a critical condition in the hospital, police said.
