Authorities in the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Phuoc Sunday dismissed a commune police chief for shooting and injuring a man with rubber bullets during a gambling raid.
Cao Dinh Sam,of the Long Ha Commune police division was sacked following investigation into the shooting of Nguyen Huu Nam, 55.
On February 29 Sam led officers on a raid of a shop run by Nam's daughter selling beverages and caught four people gambling.
Nam, who was taking care of the shop, told the officers that one of them was not gambling, which led to an argument between them.
Sam then took out a gun and fired four shots at him.
Despite having three bullets wounds in his neck and shoulders, Nam was then held at the police station until midnight before his family was allowed to take him to hospital.
The investigation is continuing.
