GEORGE TOWN, Feb 22 2017 : A businesswoman was shot dead by one of two men on a motorcycle at Jalan Lintang Pekaka 9, Gelugor, here yesterday.

Penang CID chief SAC Zainol Samah said 10 shots were fired at the woman at 5.45pm as she was driving alone from Sungai Dua to Bukit Gambir.

“Six of the shots hit the victim’s chest causing serious injuries,” he said.

“The woman lost control of her vehicle which crashed into the rear of a four-wheel drive vehicle and rammed the wall of a house at Jalan Lintang Pekaka here,” he told reporters at the scene last night.

The body was sent to the Penang Hospital, he said, adding that police were relying on CCTV camera footage to track down the two suspects. – Bernama
