KUALA LUMPUR (BERNAMA, THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The Malaysian police are investigating a drive-by shooting outside an entertainment outlet in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday night (June 24). 

Police said two men on a motorcycle fired 25 shots towards the entrance of the entertainment outlet located in the tourist area of Bukit Bintang, shocking the patrons and members of the public nearby. 

No one was injured in the incident, Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigation Department chief Rusdi Mohd Isa said in a statement on Monday (June 25).

According to preliminary investigation by the police, the men opened fire at the outlet at 10.50pm. The shots were apparently fired as a warning over what is believed to be a misunderstanding involving business matters.

Senior Assistant Commissioner Rusdi said the police recovered 25 spent bullet casings at a parking area about 30m from the entrance to the outlet.

He said four employees of the outlet were outside the entrance and reception area at the time of the incident.

He also said that a member of the public, who was outside the entrance at the time, said he heard several shots being fired from the area of the carpark.
