PETALING JAYA - A 51-year-old woman survived a drive-by shooting near a traffic light in Sierramas, Sungai Buloh on Wednesday.

The administrative officer at a church had stopped her car at the junction leading to the Sungai Buloh toll plaza at about 8.30am when a man fired from a pistol after alighting from a motorcycle.

"They were wearing full-faced helmets," Supt Junaidi said.
