SERDANG, Malaysia — A groom-to-be and his bosom pal were shot dead at close range while they were distributing his wedding invitations in Serdang on Wednesday night.
Serdang police chief ACP Razimi Ahmad said all angles were being investigated and that a manhunt was underway for the assailants.
A. Shamnson and A. Rubban, both 25, died instantly after a gunman fired five shots at them on the street in front of horrified onlookers.
The gunman, wearing a black T-shirt and a full-faced helmet, fled the scene with an accomplice at 9.20pm.
Rubban worked as a loss adjusting agent with Milan Evolusi Sdn Bhd, and both also worked as part-time bouncers.
Rubban’s family claimed he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, as he would normally avoid such violent situations.
They alleged that Shamnson was the actual target, over the relationship with his fiance.
- Rubban’s uncle, S. Vijendran, said the family suspected that jealousy was the motive behind the attack.
