IPOH -- A man was shot dead and his two friends seriously injured when two gunmen opened fire from inside a car in front of a restaurant in Kampung Simee here last night.
Jasrafveenderjeet Singh, 25, who sustained a gunshot wound in the neck, died while undergoing treatment at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital here.
His friends, Koo Loo Kong, 55, and Sarbjit Singh Harder Singh, 28, who were believed to have been hit by stray bullets in the 10.15pm incident, have been warded at the hospital.
Their condition has been described as serious but stable.
Ipoh police chief ACP Sum Chang Keong said Jasrafveenderjeet, who was drinking with the duo at the restaurant, had earlier approached two men who were seated in a car.
Suddenly, several shots rang out from inside the vehicle, hitting Jasrafveenderjeet, Koo and Sarbjit, he said.
"The shots were believed to have been fired at close range, with several stray bullets hitting the deceased's friends," he said when contacted here today. -- BERNAMA
