Man opens fire in entertainment centre in Johor, injuring two

JOHOR BARU: A man wearing a full-face crash helmet dashed into an entertainment centre here on Wednesday night and fired a gun at random, injuring two patrons, police said on Friday.

Johor Baru Selatan police chief ACP Zainuddin Yaakob said the man came to the centre in Jalan Damai, Taman Serene, at 11.45pm and fired five shots from a 9mm calibre semi-automatic pistol.

One of the shots hit a 42-year-old man in the right calf and another hit a 51-year-old man on the left side of the chest, he said.

"We are investigating the motive for the shooting, and have classified the case as attempt to murder," he told reporters after visiting one of the victims in hospital.

Ten people, among them some employees, were at the centre during the incident, Zainuddin said. - Bernama
