GEORGE TOWN: A Hindu priest narrowly escaped death when he was shot at outside his house at Jalan Satu in Air Itam near here.

It is learnt that two men on a motorcycle rode near his house with one of them firing several shots at the priest who was outside his house on Friday night. 

However, none of the shots hit him but he stumbled to the ground in shock in the 9.30pm incident.

Several neighbours came out of their houses thinking the gunshots were the sound of firecrackers.

Forensic personnel in two police patrol cars arrived at 10pm to investigate the incident.

The police have yet to release an official statement on the shooting.
