Taipei, July 13 (CNA) The Kaohsiung and Tainan city police chiefs will be replaced to take responsibility for recent shooting and murder cases in their jurisdictions, the National Police Agency (NPA) said in a statement Monday.

Following multiple shooting incidents and murders that hurt public confidence in the police, the NPA reported to the Ministry of the Interior that it would transfer Kaohsiung police chief Lee Yung-kuei (李永癸) and Tainan police chief Chou Yu-wei (周幼偉) to other jobs, the statement said.

In the latest case, a 41-year-old man was killed after a fight broke out outside a dance hall in Kaohsiung when he and friends were leaving shortly after 3 a.m. on Friday.

Over the past few weeks, shooting incidents caused by violent conflicts at entertainment venues in Tainan and other cities were reported.    [FULL  STORY]
