KOTA TINGGI: A couple narrowly escaped being hit by stray bullets in a shooting incident in Taman Daiman Jaya near here.
Kota Tinggi OCPD Supt Mohd Nor Rasid said the couple were doing some chores in the annexed kitchen of their house at that time yesterday morning.
“The bullets were of the 9mm type. The shots were fired from a distance and we believe the couple was not the target,” said Supt Mohd Nor.
Supt Nor Rashid said a resident in the housing estate noticed a grey-coloured MPV without registration plates speeding off after the shots were fired.
He added that police had increased patrols in the housing estate following the incident.
Those with information on the case are urged to contact the Kota Tinggi police station at 07-8831 222.
The husband –identified only as Jamuri – said he and his wife were doing work for their catering business in their annexed kitchen.
“Suddenly, I heard exploding sounds and we later found a bullet lodged in the grill door of the kitchen,” he said.
Though safe, the couple said they were still traumatised by the incident. — Bernama
