Gunman shoots at six men at coffeeshop in Malaysia
Six men narrowly escaped death when a gunman opened fire at them outside a coffeeshop in Taman Kasawari, Simpang Ampat, Malaysia
According to a report in The Star/Asia News Network, the friends, aged between 30 and 50, were admitted to the Sungai Bakap Hospital after being shot on their legs, arms and buttocks. Their condition has been reported to be stable.
One of the victims, factory van driver R. Balasundram, 53, said he had gone to the coffeeshop shortly after 10pm on Friday for drinks after sending some workers home.
“I spotted five of my friends there and decided to join them. While drinking, I noticed two men on a motorcycle riding by very slowly,” he recalled. Suddenly, I heard a loud noise. I thought someone was playing with fire crackers before I realised that they were gunshots,” he added.
Penang police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said a man had suddenly whipped out a pistol and opened fire randomly at the group of friends before speeding off on a motorcycle. Asked if the shooting was linked to Gang 04, he said it was still too early to tell, adding that the investigating officer was trying to determine the motive.
The case has been classified as attempted murder under Section 307 of the Penal Code. On Monday, five suspected Gang 04 members, believed to be linked to nine shooting cases this year, were shot dead by the police.
