He explained that the victim and his friend, James Boniyaga, used a PT MTT truck to go to Kago Village, Ilaga District, Puncak Regency, to search for an internet network as well as gallons of drinking water. Arriving near the Kampung Kago Monument, KKB approached the truck.
“(KKB) reasoned to borrow a lighter to burn cigarettes, then the perpetrator immediately shot the PT MTT truck which resulted in victim Glen Sumampo being shot in the left rib through the upper right rib,” explained Ahmad.

One of the employees reported the incident to the Puncak Polres personnel asking for an evacuation. Ahmad said that at that time KKB was running on the Ilame river bridge while holding a gun, shouting in the local language.
“Glen Sumampo is still conscious and being treated at the Ilaga Health Center. Tomorrow, the victim will be evacuated to Timika,” he said.
