23-year-old police national serviceman found with gunshot wound to the head

A 23-year-old police national serviceman was found at the Protective Security Command at 300 Ulu Pandan Rd on 3 Sept, with a gunshot wound to his head. The NSF was conveyed to National University Hospital where he passed away last Sunday, 9 Sept.

According to a press release by the police, the NSF had reported for duty at 8am and proceeded to draw his service revolver from the armoury.

Hours later, at 3.20pm, the young man was found at the rest area at the Command where he had been taking a break, with a gunshot wound to his head.

According to preliminary investigations by the Criminal Investigation Department, the NSF had apparently been arguing with someone on the phone shortly before he was discovered with the gunshot wound.

Although no foul play is suspected, the police have classified the case as unnatural death and is carefully investigating the circumstances relating to the case. The police added that they “extend our deepest condolences to the family of the late serviceman and are assisting the family in this time of grief.”
