A MAN wielding a chopper hardly flinched after being shot four times, the Coroner's Court heard yesterday. Suspected drug dealer Yeung Shui-man, 39, continued to advance on two police officers, striking one of them with his chopper. ''After the bang, he stopped for a second and looked down at his body,'' Constable Li Kin-cheung testified. ''Then he continued to rush forward.'' As Constable Li turned and ran, he heard two more shots behind him, the court heard. But when he spun around to see how badly his pursuer had been wounded, he saw Yeung swinging the chopper at his colleague's head. Constable Ng Chi-fai was on the ground, shouting: ''Stop, or else I'll shoot you!'' Constable Li said he again opened fire but ''there seemed to be no response''. Yeung continued to menace the fallen officer with his chopper, advancing on him as he tried to get away. ''At that moment I opened fire two more times,'' Constable Li said. The man with the chopper then fell back a couple of steps. For a moment he stood, frozen, his weapon still brandished above his head. Then he sat on the ground. A moment later, he lay down, Constable Li said. Forensic pathologist Dr Poon Wai-ming testified that Yeung died of gunshot wounds to his heart and lungs, and that he appeared to have been shot at least eight times. On September 11 last year, police officers had been doing drug surveillance from a Tai Po rooftop when they spotted Yeung, Sergeant Yip Tai-wai testified. ''I saw a person who impressed me as a drug addict and a drug pusher,'' the sergeant said. The court was told that Constable Kan Wai-ki was sent in for a closer look at Yeung's activities. The officer hid behind a building. When his quarry emerged from an alley, the policeman stepped out and shouted ''police!''. A struggle followed. Yeung dashed into a nearby house and emerged with a chopper. The inquest continues.
