A 29-year-old robber was shot dead when he posed as a customer at a goldsmith shop in the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall.
The robber, who was later identified as a Yuen Yue Chye of Kota Kemuning, was walking around in the shop when he snatched a gold necklace worth RM3,000 and tried to escape. The shop’s security guard gave chase and attempted to apprehend the robber. During the struggle, the robber almost got hold of the guard’s revolver but then escaped into an emergency staircase.
There, the guard fired a shot which hit the robber in the neck, killing him on the spot.
Police are now conducting investigations.
