It is believed the couple were arguing at the woman’s house in Taman Merdeka on Sunday about ending their engagement when the gun was fired, said Perak police chief Comm Datuk Razarudin Husain.
“The shot hit a dog on the leg. The man was arrested seven minutes later by two patrol car policemen.
“We ran a urine test on him and he was not under any influence from drugs,” said Comm Razarudin.
“He is being remanded and we have also seized his gun,” he said, adding a bullet casing was also recovered from the house.
Earlier, Comm Razarudin witnessed the handover ceremony between acting Ipoh OCPD Superintendent Mohamad Nordin Abdullah and new OCPD Asst Comm A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz at the senior police officer’s mess hall here yesterday.
Razarudin said the man, who was stationed at the Wang Kelian Immigration, Customs and Quarantine Complex, was absent from work on Friday.
“A report was filed on his disappearance the following day and we later found out that he was at his fiancée’s home.
“He has been suspended from duty,” he said.
