BESUT (Bernama): Six shots were fired at the house of the Besut District Council president in Kampung Gong Kapas here today, police said.
Terengganu CPO Datuk Jamshah Mustapa said the president, Ibrahim Mohamad, 55, his wife and one of their children, who were at home during the incident at 6.15 am, heard explosions did not realise they were shots.
It was only at 8.30 am when the wife was cleaning the house that she noticed glass fragments from their car and bullet casings in the compound of the single-storey bungalow, he said.
She immediately telephone her husband, who was already at his office, and informed him of the find, he added.
A police probe revealed that six shots had been fired at the house, two of which hit the building and four, a Mercedes Benz CLK320 car, he told a news conference.
Jamshah said police did not rule out the possibility that the shots were fired as a warning, apparently by someone unhappy with action taken by the council president.
He said the police probe indicated that the shots were fired from close range, about five metres away, and by more than one person.
The forensics team recovered a Luger Speer 9mm shell from the road in front of the house, he addeds
