SHAH ALAM: A lorry driver was shot in the leg following a 30-minute high-speed chase by two police patrol units.
It is learnt that the man was driving dangerously at Jalan Kebun here, as traffic policemen were handling rush hour traffic, at about 7am, Friday.
When told to stop the vehicle, the driver sped off in the lorry and two mobile patrol vehicles gave chase until Taman Kandis, Klang.
Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Azisman Alias said police had managed to cordon off the area and trap the suspect with backup from two other MPVs.
He said that two passengers had run off to nearby bushes and escaped as soon as police had cordoned off the area.
“The lorry driver had run off too but he came back brandishing a metal rod in his hand,” Azisman said when contacted.
He added that the driver tried to wrestle a pistol from one of the policemen, forcing him to fire a shot, which hit the man’s leg.
“We are still searching for the two other men, who were with the lorry driver,” Azisman said.
