PETALING JAYA: An intoxicated retiree has been remanded for brandishing a gun after he fell and hurt his head at a mall in Bandar Utama here on Wednesday (Aug 8).

The commotion caused panic and rumours began to float around social media claiming that a man had been shot there.


Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said they were alerted about the case at around 7.10pm on Wednesday.


"We got a tip-off that a man had fallen and hurt his head in a drunken state at a restaurant there.

"He took out a gun while looking for his friend while paramedics were tending to his wound," he said when contacted on Thursday (Aug 9).

He said a police car and motorcycle patrol unit were dispatched to the scene.

The man was arrested and the semi-automatic gun, a magazine and bullets were seized.

"The 61-year-old was taken to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre for medical treatment and has been remanded for further investigations.

"Checks revealed that the suspect had a permit for the gun he was carrying," he said adding that police had taken a statement from the suspect's friend.
