Police investigating the scene of the shooting.
Pahang deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Jamaluddin Abd Majid said the victim Lee Siew Meng, 42, was checking in at a hotel at Jalan Air Putih here when he was approached by two of the suspects in the 4.20am incident.
"The two men asked the victim where he was going and when Lee answered that he was checking in, the suspect said the hotel's full. The suspects then hit the victim on the head and fired two shots," he told reporters at the district police headquarters here on Wednesday.
DCP Jamaluddin said one of the bullets penetrated the victim's right shoulder and exited through his back while another shot hit Lee in the left rib.
The victim, from Kuala Terengganu, also had a slash wound on his head, he said.
"He was sent to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Afzan and is reported to be stable after surgery to remove the bullet," said Jamaluddin.
He added that police believed the motive of the four men was to rob Lee of his Peugeot 308 car as they left his wallet containing RM988 untouched.
"We will investigate whether this case is linked to the shooting in Jalan Haji Ahmad recently," said DCP Jamaluddin.
On August 13, 35-year-old Ruzelawati Basri escaped with slight injury after she was shot at by an unknown man in a carjacking attempt.
She had stopped her Toyota Alphard in front of a restaurant after refuelling it at a petrol kiosk when the pistol-wielding man came and ordered her to get out.
Ruzelawati was injured in the right eye by glass fragments when the man fired a shot at her car.
