KLIA shooting victim is in critical condition, says wife

KUALA LUMPUR: "I am still in shock and did not expect this to happen in the month of Syawal,” says the wife of a bodyguard who was seriously injured in the shooting incident at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport Terminal 1 (KLIA 1) early this morning.

The wife, who wants to be identified as Siti Noraida, 28, said that as soon as she received information about the incident at 2 am, she rushed to Cyberjaya Hospital, where her husband received treatment.

"The hospital informed me that my husband's condition is critical and he needs to be intubated. I was also told there was severe bleeding, and when he arrived at the hospital, he had difficulty breathing. However, no vital organs were hit,” she told Bernama.

The full-time housewife said her husband was assigned as a part-time bodyguard before the month of Ramadan.

The mother of three also hopes that the authorities will succeed in locating the suspect so that he will be brought to justice.

Earlier, Selangor police chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan confirmed that there had been a shooting incident at the KLIA 1 early this morning involving a male suspect who was believed to have fled to the north.

He said the incident stemmed from a personal issue and was unrelated to terrorist activities or groups. – Bernama
