JELEBU: A hunting trip for two friends here turned tragic when one was killed in a shooting incident.

Jelebu police chief Deputy Supt Mazlan Udin said police have remanded a 52-year-old man after he claimed to have accidentally shot his 61-year-old friend in the incident on April 24.

"The suspect claimed they went hunting at Muka Sauk in Kuala Klawang and were armed with home-made weapons.

"The suspect, thinking that he saw a deer, fired a shot which then hit the victim in the head," he said, adding that the victim was killed on the spot.

DSP Mazlan said the man turned himself in at the Titi station around 8.30pm the same day.

Police also seized the weapon, some live ammunition and empty shells from the suspect.

The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code and Section 8 of the Firearms Act 1960.
