MOTIVE NOT KNOWN: No one hurt, 2 cars hit, window shattered
PETALING JAYA: A LONE gunman fired at least 10 shots into the compound of a double-storey bungalow in SS19 here, early yesterday morning, shattering a window and damaging two cars that were parked in the drive way.
The house belongs to a Datuk who is said to be a consultant for large business group.
The incident occurred about 5am when the 57-year-old Datuk, his wife, two children, two guests and three workers were asleep in the bungalow at SS19/4, here.
District deputy police chief Superintendent Tan Ah Chua said no casualties were reported and the bullet marks were only discovered by a maid some three hours after the incident.
He said a security guard on duty at the entrance said he heard the shots about 5am but thought they were firecrackers.
Police said closed-circuit television camera footage from the house showed that one shooter had fired the shots about 5am.
"The man came in a car, which was parked some distance away, walked up to the front gate and fired the shots.
"The incident was over within seconds. Two cars were hit and a window was shattered," Tan said, adding that the Forensics Unit had found 10 spent cartridges, believed to be from 9mm bullets.
Police have recorded statements from the occupants of the bungalow but none of them claimed to know why they were targeted.
