KUALA LUMPUR: A car theft suspect was shot dead while another two, including a woman, were arrested by the police after a high-speed car chase here on the MRR2, near Taman Ampang Hilir.
The suspects, aged between 20 and 26, who were in a red Proton Satria, had rammed into eight
cars and two motorcycles before the police managed to stop them on Friday.
City police CID acting chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa said a police team first spotted the suspects in a housing area in Wangsa Maju at about 8.30pm on Friday.
When the cops asked the trio to step out of the car, ACP Khairi said the driver sped off instead and rammed a policeman’s motorcycle.
“The suspects then sped off to the MRR2, heading towards Ampang,” he told reporters at the scene.
ACP Khairi said the suspects rammed into cars and the motorcycles during the chase, forcing the police to open fire.
He added that after police fired about four shots, the car stopped beside the road on the MRR2, near Taman Ampang Hilir.
“When we checked the vehicle, we found that the driver was shot in the head,” he said, adding that the suspect, who was in critical condition, was sent to the Ampang Hospital.
The suspect died at 5.40am yesterday.
The other two passengers in the car, which was reported stolen, were arrested.
ACP Khairi added that police also seized an air-gun bearing bullets, two machetes, handcuffs, equipment used for drugs and a handbag lost during a robbery case on Friday afternoon in Wangsa Maju.
He said the case was being investigated under Section 307 and Section 411 of the Penal Code for attempted murder and car theft respectively.
