KTPH shooter charged under Arms Offences Act
The man involved in the Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) shooting was charged with the unlawful discharge of a firearm this afternoon.
Muhammad Iskandar Sa'at, 23, faces the death penalty if convicted.
He had earlier been taken to court in a police van where he was restrained at the hands and feet.
Iskandar is accused of using a .38 calibre Taurus revolver and firing three shots, intending to cause physical injury to Mr Mohammad Sadli Razali, 31. The incident is believed to have happened at about 7.05pm on Saturday (June 20) at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital in Yishun.
Dressed in a white polo shirt and khaki pants, Iskandar looked around the public gallery as he was brought into court.
No plea was taken as prosecutors asked for more time for investigations because the offence is "fairly serious and fairly recent".
The judge agreed and his case will be heard again in court on June 29, along with another charge for an unrelated offence. Iskandar also asked for permission to speak to his sister-in-law who was in court. The judge agreed.
When approached after the session, the teary woman, who was dressed in a pink top and black sweater, declined to speak to the media.
