Man shot for threatening police with parang
KUCHING: A 38-year-old man was detained on Thursday after he evaded being checked by police.
A police car was patrolling along Batu 5 along Jalan Penrissen when they asked a Proton Wira driver to pull over.
But the man just drove away, prompting the police to give chase.
Somewhere along the way, a male passenger got off the Wira. Police went on pursuing the Wira.
Subsequently, more police cars joined in the pursuit as the driver headed towards Jalan Stapok Utama.
There, the suspect lost control of his car and crashed into a monsoon drain.
As police tried to apprehend the suspect, he wielded a parang threatening the police officers.
Police fired a warning shot but the man ignored it.
The police then shot the man’s leg.
After that, the suspect was taken to Sarawak General Hospital (SGH).
Police discovered three laptop computers, a mobile phone, and a ‘parang’ in the car apart from a car plate number, which the police believed belonged to another car.- Borneo Post Online, 12/9/2009, Man shot for threatening police with parang
