A full-time Police National Serviceman was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head on Wednesday (May 27).
The Singapore Police Force (SPF) confirmed on Wednesday evening that the full-time officer had been discovered inside a locked security post in the Tanglin area that morning.
Authorities said the 20-year-old had reported for duty at about 8pm the evening before, “in preparation for his night shift duties and had drawn his service revolver from the armoury, before proceeding to the duty point”.
The service revolver was lying beside him, and he was pronounced dead at about 7.50am by paramedics at the scene.
