Yesterday, 1 March, a man was gunned down right in front of SK Sri Serdang in Seri Kembangan while waiting for the school's afternoon session to end

New Straits Times reported that the father was believed to have been shot by one of two men on a motorcycle who quickly sped away.

A witness, who was also waiting for his children in front of the school, said he saw the two motorcyclists shoot the man but was unable to note down the motorcycle registration number.

"I heard four or five shots... it happened too fast, too sudden," the witness added.

Two more people were injured in the incident, believed to be as a result of stray bullets or ricochets

Selangor Criminal Investigations Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmat said a parent in his 30s also suffered from a gunshot wound after a stray bullet struck his back. 

According to Malay Mail Online, the parent is in stable condition after seeking treatment at Hospital Serdang.

Fadzil also said that the forensics unit was conducting investigations, and it was too early to conclude anything.

China Press reported that the man was a gang member who may have been shot due to internal conflict

According to China Press, the gunmen knew the man and his whereabouts very well. Furthermore, they were familiar with the school's area before the shooting happened. 

Fadzil said the case will be investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder, and the police are currently hunting down the suspects.
