Police raided an apartment on Quach Van Tuan Street in Tan Binh District after a tip-off. Several gamblers present there attempted to flee in a hurry and three of them just jumped out of a window on the fifth floor in an effort to evade arrest. Two died immediately and one was taken to the hospital.
Nguyen Quoc Buu, a parking lot attendant in the building, said he heard loud noises and suddenly saw three people sprawled on the ground in a pool of blood.
Police are verifying the identities of the three men and the remaining gamblers have been arrested and remanded into custody till further investigation.
