TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Thursday arrested three suspects, including one organized crime member, for involvement in a shooting incident in Shibuya Ward over one year ago, reports TBS News (March 5).

In December of 2013, police allege that Jun Kadomoto, a 51-year-old member of the Kyokuto-kai, part-time worker Atsuo Fujita, 52, and one other suspect destroyed the door at the entrance of a seventh-floor apartment in the Ebisu district by firing four rounds of ammunition from a pistol.

The suspects, who have been charged with violating the Swords and Firearms Control Law, have refused to comment on the allegations.

According to public broadcaster NHK (March 5), a resident of the apartment is 67-year-old former member of the Kyokuto-kai. Police believe that a dispute within the gang lead to the incident.

The suspects were identified following the examination of security camera footage taken from an area near the scene of the crime.
