Restaurant operator shot in Nibong Tebal incident

Penang CID chief SAC Mazlan Kesah said the victim, in his 40s, was shot after he had stopped his car to go to a restaurant nearby to see a friend.


A restaurant operator was seriously injured in a shooting incident in the Taman Merak Business Park in Nibong Tebal at 3.13pm today.

Penang CID chief SAC Mazlan Kesah said the victim, in his 40s, was shot after he had stopped his car to go to a restaurant nearby to see a friend.

He said moments after the victim had stopped his car, two men on a Honda motorcycle approached and one of them fired at him.

"Four shots were fired, one which hit him in the chest. The victim is the owner of the restaurant where a random shooting incident occurred and caused six people to be injured in Taman Kasawari, Simpang Ampat here on August 23," he told reporters at the scene.

Mazlan said the suspects then sped away in the direction of Jalan Perusahaan Bukit Minyak near here before abandoning the motorcycle by the roadside about five kilometres from the scene of the shooting because it broke down.

"They are believed to have been fetched by their friends who came in a car. Police found two crash helmets, two shirts and a holster by the motorcycle," he said.

He said the victim was sent to the Seberang Jaya Hospital where his condition was reported to be stable. He added that the motorcycle bore false registration plates.

How many shooting cases in the 2 months? Sorry I lost count. Despite illegal immigrant being detained natonwide.

Does it mean the police are going after the wrong crowd?

seriously, this blaming the 'foreigners' for everything is just suuuuch a convenient excuse for not having, or perhaps not wanting,  to tidy up our own yard.
Most of the foreigners who come here do so out of poverty to feed their families back home. 
Those killings are done assassination style by people who seem to have some training in handling a gun, who know how to aim etc. .............. who know the people concerned, where they live,  as they can quickly make then out in a crowd.......etc etc......
and yes, illegals are being detained...... but killings go on...........!?
