KOTA KINABALU: City police arrested a 40-year-old man and his female companion after a businessman was gunned down in Jalan Gaya near Hongkong Bank here on Thursday evening. 

Deputy OCPD Supt Mohd Zain Ismail said the businessman, Chin Chen Mong, 39, who came to Sabah from Perak about 20 years ago, was shot after he alighted from his car. 

He said the motive of the shooting could not be immediately determined and police were still questioning the man and his 39-year-old companion who were picked up yesterday. 

Supt Mohd Zain said Chin and his girlfriend were driving along Jalan Gaya from the nearby Wisma Merdeka shopping complex in his car when he had a flat tyre, prompting Chin to stop the vehicle. 

As Chin was changing the tyre, his girlfriend, who had remained inside the car, heard a gunshot and saw him sprawled on the road. 

The girlfriend sought help from passing motorists who rushed Chin to hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. 

In an unrelated incident, a 77-year-old man collapsed and died while having sex with a woman at a budget hotel here on Thursday. 

Supt Mohd Zain said hotel workers called the police after a woman rushed out from the room and told them the man had fallen unconscious while having sex with her.
