SEREMBAN: Two men were shot dead after they were involved in a gunfight with police by the roadside of Persiaran Ainsdale Selatan here early today.
The drama unfolded about 3.15am when a police team from Bukit Aman was on routine patrol along Jalan Labu near here and spotted two men in a Honda City driving erratically.
The patrol car immediately ordered the duo to pull over but they sped off instead.
A car chase then ensued for about two kilometres until the driver of the Honda City pulled over along Persiaran Ainsdale Selatan and one of them got out of the car and started firing at the approaching policemen.
The other suspect also attacked the policemen with a machete.
Policemen who were forced to defend themselves returned fire and killed both suspects on the spot. Checks later showed the deceased did not have any identification papers on them.
It is learnt the car they were in was also fitted with false registration plates and had been used for criminal activities in the Klang Valley.
Negeri Sembilan police chief Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin confirmed the incident and is expected to call for a press conference later today.
