KAJANG: A 53-year-old masseur was shot in the buttocks while he was with a male client in his Taman Reko residence at around 8.24am Monday.
The masseur, identified as Pang Kon Sook, went outside to see two men on a motorcycle parked outside his house.
Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Ab Rashid Ab Wahab said as Pang made his way back into the house to continue massaging his client, one of the men trailed after him and fired as shot at the masseur.
“We believe only one shot was fired at Pang. The bullet blasted through his right buttock.
“A neighbour who heard the gunshot rushed him to the Kajang Hospital where he received treatment,” he added.
According to ACP Ab Rashid, the gunman was known only to the victim as ‘Ravi’.
“His accomplice, who was wearing a full face helmet, waited for him on the motorcycle.
“Both men fled the scene after the shooting,” he added.
Pang was said to be in stable condition after surgery.
Other than a masseur, Pang also sold caskets and was a landscape contractor.
ACP Ab Rashid said Pang, a divorcee with three children was alone at home with the client during the incident.
“We are still investigating possible motives behind the shooting.
“We retrieved a 9mm Thai Arms casing from the living room but were unable to find the bullet,” he added.
The case is being probed under Section 3 of the Firearms (Increased Penalties) Act 1971 for discharging a firearm with intent to cause death or hurt.
