JOHOR BARU: About a dozen people who had gathered in the house of a slain gang 04 member to chant prayers were shocked when a friend who had come to attend the prayers was gunned down about 10 metres from the house.
The incident occurred at about 8.25pm when the victim, K. Anand, 29, from Kedah had come to the house of D. Selvam, 35, known as "Teratai Boy Johor" who was shot dead in Malacca on Sept 12.
It is learnt that the victim, a businessman, together with another man had come for the 16th day prayers when two men on a motorcycle came up to their car in Jalan Teratai 32 in Taman Johor Jaya before firing at least four shots.
It is learnt that the victim, who was the driver, died on the spot while the friend managed to escape.
Sources said that the car was parked in an alley about five to 10 metres away from Selvam's house.
About a dozen people who had gathered for the prayers immediately rushed to the car soon after hearing gunshots.
Anand does not have a criminal record.
Sri Alam OCPD Supt Roslan Zainuddin when contacted confirmed the case but declined to elaborate on investigations.
On Sept 12, Teratai Boy, who had 10 criminal records against him was shot dead by police along with another man in Cheng Malacca.
Selvam was involved in criminal cases in Malacca, Negri Sembilan, Kedah and Penang in the past two years.
