The suspects, realizing they were being followed, attempted to flee while firing shots at the police vehicles. The police responded by shooting at the suspect’s vehicle, resulting in both individuals sustaining gunshot wounds and dying at the scene.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the 42-year-old suspect had a lengthy criminal record, with 38 previous offenses involving drugs. The identity of the second suspect remains unknown, as they did not possess any identification documents.

A search of the vehicle yielded various substances believed to be drugs, as well as two guns and a pistol. The incident has sparked widespread attention, with several videos of the shootout going viral on social media. As a result, police closed some roads and redirected traffic flow in the Kebun Teh area after Jalan Abad.

The case is currently being investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the dangers faced by law enforcement officers in their efforts to combat crime and keep communities safe. The investigation is ongoing, and further details are expected to emerge in the coming days.
