KOTA KINABALU: Police shot two men who attacked their personnel in two separate incident in the east coast town of Semporna early Sunday.

The man whipped out a 15cm-long knife and attacked one of the policemen when they approached him.
A policeman immediately fired a shot and the bullet hit the 27-year-old man in the right shoulder.
