Person with a Gun Fatally Shot at Police HQ


MARCH 31, 2021

Jakarta. A person wearing full-face veil was shot to death for allegedly trying to attack with a handgun at the National Police headquarters in South Jakarta on Wednesday afternoon.

Police have yet to confirm if the person is a man or a woman.

An amateur video circulating on social media shows the person in blue niqab and black gown walked into the Criminal Investigation Agency (Bareskrim) building at the police compound and pointed a gun in front of the door.

The person was ultimately shot and fell to the ground. A pistol and a yellow paper folder can be seen near the body.

Police said they will hold a press conference later today.

The incident came only three days after a couple blew themselves up near a Catholic church in Makassar, South Sulawesi.

The church bombing injured at least 20 people.
