KUALA LUMPUR: A burglary suspect believed to be a foreigner was shot dead by a businessman as he broke into the latter's double storey bungalow at Taman Bukit Ledang, Jalan Duta here with three accomplices early this morning.
Brickfields police chief ACP Wan Abd Bari Wan Abd Khalid told a media conference at the KL police contingent here today that in the 2.30am incident, the four suspects who were wearing masks had already broken into the house via the front door before the businessman, in his 60s, realised their presence.
"The businessman shot at the 37-year-old suspect who died at the scene, while his accomplices managed to flee," he said.
He said police were tracking down the other suspects and urged the public with any relevant information to contact the nearest police station. -- BERNAMA
