Chin Kok Wah, 33, owned a unit in the same block and had rented the snooker centre located on the second floor as a hideout over the past year for his gang to carry out drug trafficking, armed robbery and loan sharking activities.Kuala Lumpur police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Muhammad Sabtu Osman said the man had opened fire at a policeman and three officers from the Serious Crimes Investigation Department (D9) as they entered the premises at 10.40am yesterday.“He shot once, but missed. My men returned fire and instantly killed him.“A check later revealed that his Colt .45 automatic pistol had a bullet jammed in the chamber,” he said.The man is believed to have been under surveillance for a week before police moved in on him and investigations show that he had been robbing cash from security vans in Selangor.
“Also recovered were five bullets of the same calibre, two pump gun shells, two machetes, a handcuff, a light baton and a taxi believed to have been used when he carried out his criminal activities to avoid detection,” DCP Sabtu said.DCP Sabtu said police were on the lookout for at least six other group members aged between 25 and 30.Meanwhile, Seputeh MP Teresa Kok who lives in a condominium nearby was shocked when told a shooting had occurred near her home.“I will immediately contact my condominium’s resident association to discuss installing CCTV and beef up security,” she said.
