Police investigating drive-by shooting outside KL club

KUALA LUMPUR • Police in Malaysia are investigating a drive-by shooting outside a nightclub in Kuala Lumpur.

City Criminal Investigation Division chief Rusdi Md Isa yesterday said the incident occurred late on Sunday night.

"A witness claimed that he heard shots fired from the direction of the parking lot. The suspects, believed to be on a motorcycle, fired multiple shots at the night club entrance," Senior Assistant Commissioner (SAC) Rusdi said.

He said no one was injured and the suspects fled the scene at once.

"We found at least 25 bullet casings in the parking lot, which is located about 30m from the entrance of the nightclub (in Bukit Bintang)," he said, adding that no arrests have been made so far.

SAC Rusdi said four staff members were standing outside the nightclub at the time of the incident.

"We have yet to establish a motive for the shooting," he said, adding that the police were investigating the case under Section 39 of the Arms Act 1960 for discharging arms outside a shooting range.
