KUALA LUMPUR: Two men trying to escape from pursuing armed gunmen rammed their car into a group of students outside a school in Banting.

While the three students suffered injuries to their legs and neck, the two men, including a bodyguard, were shot several times in the brazen daylight drive-by shooting, believed to be related to a clash between two groups.

The two gunmen had tailed the blue BMW before firing in front of SMK Telok Datok at around 12.45pm yesterday.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said the students were injured after the bodyguard rammed into them and several cars while trying to escape.

“The suspects, who were on a motorcycle, had tailed the BMW and fired several shots at it.

“One of those in the car is a bodyguard, who was driving the vehicle during the incident,” he said when contacted.

The men in the car were shot in the chest and other parts of their body, he said.

“They were rushed to Hospital Banting for treatment,” SAC Fadzil said, adding that the three students were also treated at the same hospital.

“Doctors are checking whether they sustained other injuries.

Initial investigations revealed that the motive for the attack was a clash between two groups.

“We are in the midst of identifying the suspects,” he said.

SAC Fadzil urged anyone with information to contact the nearest police station.
