A HAWKER opened fire on a neighbour at a Vietnamese refugee camp, the High Court heard yesterday. Le Van Chien, 21, allegedly shot twice at Ho Minh Cong, 22, as he walked near his home. Prosecutor Jim Dick told how the electronic goods seller and two other men accosted Ho at the Pillar Point refugee camp on December 22 last year and demanded money. Ho said he did not have any, but as he turned to go Le shouted after him. When Ho looked round the defendant was pointing a gun at him, the court heard. Mr Dick said: 'He saw there was a spark or flash from it. 'He ran away and was chased by the defendant, who apparently fired another shot at him.' Both shots missed. 'He ran away and hid and did not return home until early the following morning.' Mr Dick said there was little doubt someone had shot at Ho, but the question was who. The victim, also a hawker, said he had no idea why the defendant should have fired at him. Le denies shooting with intent to do grievous bodily harm, discharging a firearm with reckless disregard for others' safety and possession of a pistol without a licence. The trial before Deputy Judge Burrell continues today.
