A man was shot dead and two others were detained in an incident at 4.36 am on Sunday near the Shangri-La hotel, where the ongoing Shangri-La Dialogue is being held. This after the driver suddenly accelerated the vehicle crashing through police barricades towards Anderson Road after being asked to open the car boot for checks.

Substances believed to be drugs were later found on one of the persons detained.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “The suspected drug traffickers should have read the newspapers about Shangri-La Dialogue, planned ahead and taken a different route.”
Hor Yee See, 49-year-old coffee shop assistant


sian-half-uncle “The reporter is kind of cute.”
Zhen Ke Ai, 62-year-old retiree


happy-bird-girl “There goes the 24-hour drug delivery service in Singapore.”
Xi Bai Fen, 20-year-old clubber
