KUALA LUMPUR: The gangland-style execution of a nightclub proprietor and his female companion at a condominium in Cheras on Friday is believed master-minded by persons known to the victims.

Cheras deputy police chief Supt Abdul Rahim Hamzah Othman said this was because the killings seemed to have been planned by the suspects.

"Since the beginning, police did not rule out revenge as the motive for the murder," he told reporters after attending the closing of a training for volunteer police constables at the Alam Damai police station here Sunday.

On Friday, K.C Wong, 52, and a 32-year-old female companion were gunned down with an automatic pistol, at the car park of their condominium in Taman Maluri, Cheras, around 3.30am.

Based on the shot wounds, police believed they were shot at close range.

Police recovered 13 spent bullets at the scene.

Abdul Rahim said police had recorded statements from several witnesses, including security guards at the condominium and close relatives of the victims.

"The identities of the suspects have yet to be ascertained. However, we are gathering information, including studying the footage of a closed-circuit television camera at the compound of the condominium," he added.
