PETALING JAYA: The police were forced to shoot at a car after an afternoon chase along the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP).

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the suspect drove in the opposite direction along the LDP.

"Our personnel were forced to fire a shot at the vehicle tyre when the suspect tried to ram into one of the policemen," he said in a statement.

The incident occurred at about 2.25pm on Thursday (March 25).

"The pursuit involved a yellow Proton Satria in Jalan Anggerik in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara here," he added.

ACP Nik Ezanee said the vehicle then stopped near the Catholic church in SS25 here before the suspect fled the scene by jumping into a drain.

"We checked the vehicle and found an assortment of items believed to be used in vehicle break-ins in the Damansara area.

"We are now tracing the whereabouts of the suspect who is believed to be in the Petaling Jaya area," he said.

The case is being investigated for attempted murder and obstructing a public servant from dispensing their duties.

Those with information on the case should contact Insp Adam Firdauz Ahmad at 012-756 5464.
