He had been shopping, and was returning to Kyi Pauk Taw Village by motorbike, when he was shot. Someone who was with him was also injured. They were shot, as they did not stop their motorbike, when the junta wanted to question them. 

On the night of December 14, Zaw Min Tun, who is an elder brother of NLD Party member Maung Maung, was arrested as a hostage. He was arrested, as the junta did not find his elder brother, Maung Maung, at Mamae Seik Village in Kawthmu Township, Yangon Region.
