The alleged perpetrator of a shooting at Thanh Ne tollgate in the northern province of Thai Binh on Monday was convinced to turn himself in, the provincial police reported on Thursday.

The suspect was identified to be Bui Xuan Dai, a 33-year-old living in Tran Lam Ward of Thai Binh City – the capital of the namesake province.

Dai admitted to having pulled the trigger on victim Bui Huy Hoang at the Thanh Ne tollgate in Thai Binh Province’s Kien Xuong District.

He also handed in the gun and two bullets to police officers.
