KAJANG - Three children watched in horror as a masked man walked up to their father and pumped five bullets into him.

The 28-year-old man is now in critical condition at the Kajang Hospital's intensive care unit (ICU).

The lorry company worker was shopping for stationery with his children, aged three to 10, in Taman Tasik Keruma, Semenyih, on Friday evening when he was attacked.

CCTV footage showed a suspect wearing a motorcycle helmet entering the premises at about 4.14pm and pointing a gun at the victim.

Witnesses at the shop told reporters that they heard as many as five shots being fired.

The attack drove the shop owner and his staff to duck under tables to protect themselves.

The suspect was then seen riding pillion on a motorcycle fleeing the scene.

The victim's children were not harmed.

The shop owner claimed that gunshots damaged a computer and photocopy machine.

Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Willey Richard said police were studying the CCTV footage for clues.

"We haven't spoken to the victim because he is still in the ICU. We have yet to establish the motive," he said.
