Three killed in armed robbery

Yesterday my wife and i went shopping in Subang Parade and we decided to eat in Kenny Rogers Rosters which was at the LG floor... As we sat there staring at the menu deciding on what to eat... we suddenly heard a 'pop!' sound like fire crackers or something... and when we looked out of the shop, we could not believe what was unfolding before our eyes... its only when we heard people screaming that we realized that it was gun fire... and when i looked up at Poh Kong Jewellers at the ground floor, I saw a man shoot at point blank towards another man who was laying on the floor... he must have taken three shots at him then ran into 'Blook' ....then come out again and take another 3 or more shoots at whom im guessed was the security guard.

By then we were on the floor of kenny rogers'. we heard a guy shout stay down! stay down!... I cld not believe it... we where a mere 50 to 80 feet from the gun man... we all (the other people and us) hurdled behind a piller because the robbers where shooting all over the place... thats when i saw another robber behind a piller infront of Poh Kong.

The shutters of the restaurant began to close... thoughtfully brought down by the manager. All the other shops also began closing their shutters. We then all hurriedly when behind the counter and into the kicthen. This was defirnately a good idea just incase of stray bullets and what nots...

It was chaos... i did not know what was going on... besides the fact that Poh Kong was being robbed, the guards where laying on the floor dead or dying. How many were there? were there more of them? We heard more gun shots.... a few minutes later some one said it was ok to come out now... It was about 15 minutes from the time we heard the first shot... Not surprisingly the robbers escaped...

a crowd was gathering but the Subang Parade Security kept a perimeter... there were three people sprawler on the floor. We could not see two of them from the LG floor. We only cld see the one i saw get shot, who was nearer to the ledge of the ground floor near 'Blook'. Five minutes later i saw 'one' cop holding back the crowd... i am not sure if there were more policemen or not. we split the seen before the car park got jammed. As we reached the exit we saw troves of people rushing out into the car park..

.... for some reason i was not scared but calm. But as we were leaving i became more and more disturd of the thought of the robber shooting the guard over and over and over again...

As you might have read in the sunday paper, two guards were killed and one robber was shot dead by a security guard from the 'Tomei' shop. He was unfortunately hurt but i believe he is recovering.

Today i found out on Star'online' that they arrested seven people involved thru a hotel key they found on the dead robber..... thats good news indeed...

...and here i thought it was going to be another boring weekend.....

I would've freaked out, knowing that there's a bunch of TRIGGER-happy mofos robbing a jewelery store. My heart goes out to the 2 security guards who died. Kudos to the other guard who shot the robber, that has led to the arrest of the 7 robbers.
