The victim was unaware that the perpetrator had a gun and was taken aback when the perpetrator pointed it at his head. “We argued downstairs, and then he aimed the gun at my head. I stepped back, closed the door, and ran upstairs,” said Andika.

“Then, as I retreated, closed the door, and headed upstairs, he suddenly cocked his gun and aimed it at me. I narrowly dodged the bullet near my ear,” he added.

During the incident, the perpetrator fired three shots in total: two at the victim and one towards the road’s asphalt. The motive behind the shooting remains unknown. Commissioner Nicolas Ary Lilipaly, Chief of the East Jakarta Metro Police, stated that the team is conducting a thorough investigation into the case.

It has been revealed that the victim and the perpetrator were friends for over a decade. There are suspicions that the perpetrator harboured a grudge against the victim, leading to the attempted murder.
