RAWANG, May 15 – Two men, including one with a criminal record of theft and causing hurt with a weapon, were killed in a shootout with police, in Jalan Lagong, here, early this morning. Selangor CID chief Datuk Mohd Adnan Abdullah said in the 3am incident, an anti-crime patrol team spotted the suspects behaving suspiciously in a Waja car at Kundang night market site.
“The police team tailed them for two kilometres until their car skidded at a bend. The suspects immediately shot at the pursuing police patrol car. They then abandoned their car and continued shooting at the police team. Police returned fire killing the 40 and 41 year-old suspects on the spot,” he told reporters at crime the scene here, Sunday.
The two suspects were from Kepong and Sungai Buloh. Mohd Adnan said one of the suspects was wanted by police as he had a crime record on theft and causing hurt using a weapon. Initial investigation revealed that the car used by the suspects was reported missing in Sungai Jarum in 2014.
