Suspected criminal killed in early shootout

KOTA KINABALU: A suspected burglar was shot and killed in a police shootout at Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP) early yesterday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Dato Razarudin Husain disclosed that the unidentified man believed to be in his thirties, sped off on a motorcycle when confronted by police, prompting a high speed chase at around 2am.

“The chase involving two police vehicles started near 1Borneo Hypermall until KKIP where the bike skidded and struck a curb.

“As eight police officers closed in on the suspect, they heard gunshots coming from the suspect and retaliated while seeking cover,” he told at a press conference here yesterday.

No cops were injured as the man sustained gunshots to his chest and skull.

Police recovered a .38 caliber pistol with three spent bullets in the chamber and two live rounds while three more bullets were found in the suspect’s right trouser pocket.

Also found was a red bag containing bolt cutters, machete, and a crowbar suspected to be tools about to be used for a heist.

Razarudin said no cases of robbery at gunpoint were reported in the area, leading police to believe that the gun was used as the suspect’s final weapon of defence after machetes and iron pipes.

He also added the suspect was using a motorcycle stolen from an area in Tamparuli last Monday and had swapped out the license plates.

“Investigations are continuing under Section 307 of the Penal Code as fingerprint samples have been taken and sent to the police headquarters in Bukit Aman to determine the suspect’s nationality,” he said.
