KUALA LUMPUR: City police fired at a fleeing suspect after he had rammed his vehicle into a patrol car.

The incident, which occurred early Thursday, started after the suspect fled cops who had stopped him for suspicious behaviour.

A chase then ensued from Jalan Klang Lama here.

Backup was called and the chase led to the Petaling Jaya area, near Taman Medan.

City police chief Comm Datuk Mazlan Lazim said that shots were fired after the suspect rammed his vehicle into one of the police cars.

“He rammed into one of our units and continued to do so when we tried to make an arrest. Because of that, we were forced to open fire. After hearing the shots, the suspect escaped.

“We are still in the midst of hunting down the suspect and those with information are urged to inform the police immediately,” he said.

He added that the suspect abandoned his car near Jalan PJS 5 shortly after the shots were fired.

A video of the shooting had also made its way unto social media.

The 51-second video showed the police stopping the car, while shouting for the suspect to exit the vehicle.

However, the car suddenly reverses before crashing into one of the police cars.

Shots are heard, and the suspect’s car can be seen speeding away while the police follow closely behind.
