Photo showing two people being arrested not related to KK shooting, say cops

KOTA KINABALU: A photograph showing two individuals being arrested by police, which is being widely circulated over the social media and messaging services are not related to the shootings here.

Sabah police Criminal Investigation Department chief Senior Asst Comm Omar Mammah said the two men were suspects in a theft case and had nothing to do with the shooting of more than 30 business premises here and in Penampang and Inanam early Saturday.

He said police are still carrying out investigations to identify the actual suspects.

"The public should not get carried away with this case and believe what is being said or published over social media," he said.

Omar also said police were still combing though various closed circuit television (CCTV) footage.

"We are still collecting evidence, including footage from CCTV installed at several premises," he said.
