A jewellery shop in a Giant supermarket here was hit by four armed men who robbed the shop of RM1 million worth of jewellery including diamonds on Friday at 10:30am.

At about 9:30am, six salesgirls were just opening the shop when three of the suspects entered wearing face masks. The fourth suspect stood outside the entrance. One of the suspects fired three shots in the air while the other two started breaking showcases with hammers.

Three salesgirls took cover while the other three managed to run out of the shop.

Before they took off, two suspects fired at least six shots and all of them left on two motorcycles. The motorcycles were later left near the North-South Expressway toll plaza at Taman Sejati.

Police are asking anyone with information on the case to call 04-4212222.
