KUALA LUMPUR – One of two men on a motorcycle fired a fatal shot at a man seated in the front passenger seat of a car parked along a road in Jinjang last night, police said today.
The 25-year-old man died at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital, said Kuala Lumpur Police deputy chief Datuk Mazlan Lazim.
The shooting took place at about 9.30 pm when the man and his friend, the driver of the car, were seated in the vehicle parked along Jalan Kg Segambut Bahagia Tambahan, waiting for someone to hand them some money, he said to reporters after a walkabout at the Masjid Jamek LRT station here.
He said two men on a motorcycle approached the car and one of the riders fired a shot which struck the man in the front passenger seat on the left shoulder.
“Soon after the shooting, the driver drove fast to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital,” he said.
However, he said, the man died at the hospital at 10.13 pm.
Mazlan appealed to anyone who had information on the shooting to contact any police station. – BERNAMA
