PETALING JAYA: The security guard who shot a bank operational manager on Wednesday, is still at large and armed with a pump gun.
Subang Jaya Deputy OCPD Supt Tan Ah Chua said that a taskforce has been formed to investigate the case and capture the suspect.
A photo of the suspect taken from a CCTV screen shot has already been disseminated to the media.
In the incident on 6.18pm, Wednesday, the suspect shot Norazita Abu Talib with a pumpgun when the latter and a colleague were opening a safe in the bank at Jalan USJ Sentral 2.
The suspect who escaped on a motorcycle was last seen wearing his white security guard uniform and a dark-coloured jacket.
It is also suspected he holds a fake Malaysian IC stating that he is Ardi Hamza from Tawau, Sabah.
The incident was widely discussed among netizens with many sharing the news via social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
Rumours that the suspect was caught at LCCT Sepang while trying to flee to Sabah started on Twitter at about 11pm but police have confirmed that this is false.
A gruesome picture of the victim was also circulated on the Internet on Wednesday night, raising the ire of many who claimed that it was very unethical of those sharing them.
Many expressed sympathy for the family of the victim, a mother of two.
Members of the public with any information on the suspect’s whereabouts are encouraged to contact the police hotline at 03-20529999.
