Mafia has arrived in Malaysia

Two patrons at a restaurant were seriously injured when a gunman, armed with a shotgun, opened fire at their table in what was believed to be a planned hit yesterday morning.

The incident in Green Heights was the second mafia-style shooting reported in the state this year.

The first case was reported in Sibu in January.

Police believe that both cases could be linked to an on-going turf war to take control of illegal gambling operations in the state.

In yesterday's incident, businessman Ang Soon Heng, 30, was shot in the head, while Ho Leong Hee, 60, was hit in the abdomen.

Police believe that Ang was the intended victim, while Ho was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time - NST
