Trader gunned down in JB
By FARIK ZOLKEPLI

JOHOR BARU: A 42-year-old supplier of alcoholic beverages was gunned down by an unknown assailant after his vehicle was knocked from behind.

Wong Bak Wei, who was with his wife and sister-in-law, was driving his Toyota Estima in Taman Molek after dropping off his son at a nearby tuition centre.

Then, Wong and the two women went on their way for grocery shopping at about 9.55am in Taman Johor Jaya when a car, believed to be a Toyota Vios, bumped into his vehicle from behind.

When Wong got out of his vehicle and went to the back to inspect the damage, the unknown assailant shot him point-blank in the head.

Seri Alam OCPD Supt Roslan Zainuddin said police were ruling out robbery as a motive as the victim’s belongings did not go missing.

“We are still ascertaining the murder weapon used. We have not recovered any bullet shells or casings,” he said, adding that police were checking whether the victim had any enemies or past criminal records.

The body, he said, had been sent to the Sultanah Aminah Hospital for a post-mortem.

He urged anyone with information to contact the police hotline at 07-221 2999 or the nearest police station.
