Two Men Killed And A Cop Injured In Attempted Robbery KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 2006, -- High drama unfolded at Jalan Genting Klang near Setapak Tuesday during a robbery attempt which left two men dead and a policeman injured.
The victim who resisted and got shot

Sentul OCPD ACP Mohamed Rodzi Ismail said the incident occurred at 10.30am after Chin Kim Kian, 26, and a friend parked their car at the parking lot in front of a row of shops next to the Sri Pelangi condominium.

The suspect got shot twice and then killed himself with his own gun

They were to deposit RM100,000 in the PBB bank across the road when the suspects, Liew Wan Fu, 26, who was riding pillion on a motorcycle, and an unidentified accomplice approached them.
"Liew cornered Chin and his friend at gunpoint and forced them to hand over the money. The victim probably resisted and was subsequently shot in the chest, killing him instantly," he told reporters at the scene.

He said three policemen who were patrolling the area saw the incident just as the suspect was about to flee.
"One policeman fired two shots at the suspect, the first hitting him in the waist. The suspect fell on the second shot which hit him in the chest. "However, as the policeman were about to approach him, the suspect aimed his .38mm at his own head and fired," Mohamed Rodzi said. He said that although the suspect was wearing a helmet, the close range at which the shot was fired caused the bullet to penetrate the suspect's helmet and head and hit the policeman on his left leg.

He said the 22-year-old constable, Abdi Abdul Mahad, from the Setapak police station was sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for his injury.
However, the suspect's accomplice managed to flee in the commotion, while Chin's friend was unharmed. Police managed to recover the RM100,000, he said. Mohamed Rodzi said checks revealed that the suspect, who lived in Jalan Kuchai Lama, was wanted for a murder case last year, and it was learnt that both the victim and his friend worked in a mobile phone shop in Taman Danau Kota here.

Cornered gunman then shoots himself in the head; BY KULDEEP S. JESSY

KUALA LUMPUR: An armed robber shot dead a cellular phone shop employee after grabbing a bag containing RM100,000 from him and later killed himself when policemen cornered him and a shootout ensued.
The robber, 26, took two shots to the chest and waist before shooting himself in the head. The bullet from the robber’s gun pierced through his helmet and lodged into a policeman’s left leg in the 10.30am incident at Jalan Genting Kelang, Setapak.
Witnesses said the robber, who was shot in the chest and waist, was lying on the ground and clutching the moneybag when he lifted his gun to shoot himself.
The cellular phone shop employee was identified as Chin Kim Kian, 23, from Desa Country Homes in Rawang.
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Rodzi Ismail later identified the dead robber as Liew Wan Fu, 26, from Jalan Kuchai Lama who was wanted by police for a murder-cum-robbery in 2005.
The injured police constable, Abdi Abdul Mahad, 24, from the Setapak police station is being treated at Kuala Lumpur Hospital and is in stable condition.
The drama unfolded at about 10.30am when two employees of the phone shop were walking towards a nearby bank to deposit RM100,000.
The workers had parked their car opposite the bank and were standing on the road shoulder when two men on a motorcycle pulled up near them.
The pillion rider snatched the bag containing the RM100,000 and ran off on foot when Chin gave chase and managed to catch up with the robber.
During the scuffle that ensued, the robber whipped out a revolver and shot Chin dead.
Three policemen on their rounds witnessed the incident and immediately cordoned off the area.
One of them took aim at the armed robber who was about to hop onto his accomplice’s motorcycle. Two of the shots hit the robber.
The accomplice, who was riding a Honda EX-5, sped off on seeing his comrade fall.
