The scene of the crime.
PETALING JAYA: A man, believed to be a tyre factory employee, was critically injured after he was allegedly shot by two men near Jalan 2/28 near Petaling Jaya Old Town on Friday.
In the 10pm incident, it is learnt that the factory worker was riding his motorcycle in the neighborhood when a car ran into him.
A man alighted from the vehicle and started attacking the victim with a parang, while the driver stayed in the car.
It is believed that they were after his belongings.
A witness who declined to be named said the victim climbed over the gate of his neighbour's double-storey terrace house in a bid to escape the assailants.
"He then climbed over the fence into my house compound while my family and I were still watching the television.
"I was afraid for our safety, so I switched off the lights in our house," he said.
The witness explained that he heard three gunshots being fired outside, followed by the clanking sound of metal falling on the ground.
"I looked outside and saw the man praying in front of our shrine before climbing over our gate to flee his assailants.
"A motorcyclist who happened to pass by the neighbourhood offered the man a ride to safety," he said.
The suspects had also sped away from the scene.
"There were traces of the victim's blood near our gate. A bullet is stuck on our door and a parang was also left behind," said the witness.
The police forensics team was seen scouring the area for evidence at around 11pm.
It is learnt that the victim was sent to Hospital Assunta for treatment.
