PETALING JAYA: One of the injured victims in the Penang expressway shooting told someone over the phone how "the bodyguard had gone mad" before he shot his Datuk boss dead.


According to a witness who lodged a police report Thursday, she was driving along the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway when she noticed a man bleeding from the head and face.
Thinking that it was a traffic accident, she stopped and offered to send him to hospital.
Enroute, the man asked her if he could use her phone to contact his family, she said in her report.
She then overheard the injured man saying that "the bodyguard had gone mad" and that "tailo (boss in Cantonese)" was dead.
She also heard the man say that the bodyguard had hit him on the head with his gun.
The man then called another person and said that all his belongings and his bag were in the boss' car.
Upon hearing this, the witness said she dropped the man off at a petrol station out of fear.
Three people, one of them a Datuk, were shot dead during the 7.30pm incident.
Four others were injured in the shooting.
Police have arrested the suspected shooter, who is the personal bodyguard of the Datuk.

Three shot dead near Penang Bridge

GEORGE TOWN: A bodyguard apparently went berserk and shot dead his own boss, killed two other men and injured four others at the expressway leading to the Penang Bridge.


The man was in a car together with his boss, who was driving the vehicle, and another man when he suddenly drew out his gun and shot his 32-year-old boss who was recently conferred a Datukship.
That led to their car coming to a sudden stop on the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway.
The other passenger fled on foot but the bodyguard also got out off the vehicle and started shooting at him, hitting others in the process.
The other two men killed in the 7.30pm incident yesterday was a motorist and a man on a motorcycle.
One of the injured was RTM cameraman, Muhamad Amirul Amin Amir, 28, who was on his way to the Penang Pesta site with Sinar Harian reporter Mohamad Iskandar Osman on a motorcycle to cover the festival’s opening.
Amirul has been admitted to the Penang Hospital with two of the other injured victims, both men.
Penang CID chief Senior Asst Comm Zainol Samah said police arrested the bodyguard, who is in his 40s, at the scene.
“The suspect is the Datuk’s personal bodyguard but does not work for any security firm,” he told reporters at the scene.
He said the police were still investigating the motive of the incident.



Caught in the act: The bodyguard being detained after the shooting incident
George Town OCPD Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid identified the Datuk as Ong Teik Kwong.
He did not release the names of the other victims but it is learnt that one of them was a 69-year-old man from Prai.
Ong was conferred his Datukship by the Sultan of Pahang earlier this year. He was among those linked to another murder case in 2011 when a pirated disc trader was killed by parang-wielding men.
Meanwhile, motorist Lim Jia Ying said she was driving her car along the expressway when she saw the gunman walking in her direction.
“I was trembling in fear when I saw him coming in my direction. I told my friend who was in the passenger seat to run for our lives. But my friend told me to duck for cover instead of stepping out from the car.
“The man then walked away along the expressway. I immediately sped off. I was still in fright after that,” she related the incident in a Facebook posting.
Traffic came to an almost standstill heading towards Penang Bridge following the incident.
Meanwhile, it has been reliably learnt that a woman has lodged a police report that the second man in the car had asked her for a lift and borrowed her phone to make a call.
However, the conversation the man had with the person he called caused her to panic and she said she dropped him off at a nearby petrol kiosk.
