What started out as a police chase quickly turned into a shoot-out when the police were trying to stop the fleeing suspect.
According to a recent Facebook post by Info Roadblocks JPJ/POLIS, early investigations found that a team from the Narcotics Investigation Department of the Kuala Lumpur Contingent Police Headquarters were tailing a Proton Saga driven by a 38-year-old male individual who is suspected to be a drug dealer.
The team managed to follow the suspect to Jalan Sentul in front of a supermarket, Pasar Raya Ong Tai Kim. They tried to immobilise the suspect by blocking the front and back of the suspect’s car. However, the suspect did not cooperate and started to act aggressively. In an attempt to escape, the surrounded suspect rammed into the police car.
Polis terpaksa lepas tembakan amaran ke arah kenderaan yang cuba merempuh kereta polis yang menghalangnya dari depan dan belakang.
Kereta itu dipandu lelaki pengedar dadah.
