Man who shot police nabbed in Ipoh

SHAH ALAM - The man who shot two police officers in Pandan Indah is now behind bars after he was nabbed in a raid in Ipoh.

After a two-week manhunt, Ampang police led by Asst Supt Suhairon Rama tracked the 44-year-old suspect to a house in Lorong Gunung Rapat in Taman Cemerlang Rapat, Ipoh, where they found the suspect at 8pm.

Officers were first greeted by a woman who let them in. There they met the suspect, who was found to have a tattoo of a tiger.

"It is consistent with the accounts of the officers who were shot at. They said the man who shot them had a tiger tattoo which they saw while they were struggling with him," said Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan.

"The officers also found two live bullets belonging to a 12-bore pump gun inside a bag in the man's room. However, we did not find any gun.

"We are still tracking down the man's accomplice. We consider this case closed and are happy that the man who attacked our officers has been caught."

On the April 11 incident, L/Kpl Lional and Kons Zul Fazli Atlahi were shot by the suspect after they stopped him and his accomplice for acting suspiciously in Jalan Lembah Maju 1/16, Pandan Indah.

Both policemen are in stable condition at the Ampang Hospital.
