KUALA LUMPUR: The police shot and injured one of five armed thugs who dashed out of a car to attack a team of policemen in Tasik Permai here on Monday.
The suspect, who sustained two gunshot wounds, was warded at the Ampang Hospital where his condition was reported to be critical.

The suspects were remanded for three days.
Earlier, the five, armed with machetes, meat cleavers and iron rods, had lunged at the eight-man police team after being cornered to facilitate investigations into an altercation with another gang of thugs at an apartment in Pandan Perdana.
The windscreen of a police patrol car was also shattered in the incident about 1.30am.
