The two policemen were identified as Constables Ahmad Azza Fahmi Azhar and Syafiq Ahmad Said.

The suspect entered the station at around 2.35am on a motorcycle and went directly to the back of the station. One of the constables went to check but was fatally slashed by the suspect.

Before the suspect could cause more harm, he was gunned down by another officer.
