Worry over how gunman got weapon
(06-03 10:46)

The Chief Executive, CY Leung, says the government is very concerned over how a gunman - who allegedly killed a neighbor before turning the gun on himself - had obtained the firearm.
Speaking ahead of the weekly Executive Council meeting, Leung thanked residents of Kai Ching Estate in Kowloon Bay for their co-operation and understanding during the incident on the weekend.
The gunman is believed to have shot dead a resident there on Saturday night before killing himself the next day as police closed in.
Leung also praised the police for what he described as their swift action and professionalism in handling the incident. --RTHK
