MANJUNG: The former Kampung Jering DAP branch chairman was shot dead at his house in Kampung Jering in Ayer Tawar, near here.
Wong Kong Ting, 56, was found in a pool of blood in front of his house by family members, who heard several gunshots at about 10pm on Wednesday.
The victim was rushed to the Manjung Hospital but was pronounced dead at about 11pm.
It is learnt that the victim was shot three times, on his arm and chest.
Manjung police chief ACP Jaafar Baba said several empty bullet casings were found at the scene of the incident.
"We do not rule out the possibility of the involvement of more than one assailant in the killing," he told reporters at the Manjung police headquarters here.
He said a special police team headed by Perak CID chief Datuk Mohd Dzuraidi Ibrahim was set up to investigate the case.
Those with information on the case can contact ASP Ahmad Hisham Mohamad Sani at 019-5753207 or the Manjung police headquarters at 05-6835222 or the nearest police station.
Wong's teenage son told Bernama that he saw his father sprawled on the ground after he was shot.
"We were watching television in the house and heard the sound of my father's motorcycle entering the gate. Sudddenly, there was a loud explosion (gunshots).
"Later, a neighbour informed me that a motorcycle was seen speeding away from the house after the shots were fired.
"My father often went out with friends for food and drinks at a nearby shop," said the 18-year-old who declined to be identified.
