Multiple gunshots heard at Atria mall in Malaysia's Petaling Jaya

PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Multiple gunshots have been heard at the Atria shopping centre in the Damansara Jaya area of Petaling Jaya, Selangor on Friday (May 18). One witness, Sharmila Ganapathy, said she heard the shots originating from a goldsmith shop on the ground floor at about 5.15pm. Sharmila, a technology journalist, said she later saw two men - who looked to be in their 30s to 40s - being handcuffed and led away by police. Twitter user Ridhwa Huda posted a tweet at 5.27 pm saying she had witnessed an exchange of gunfire between police and unknown persons. "Oh my God. Police are shooting live in front of us. My heart feels like falling out," she wrote in Malay. "At Atria mall. Thought people were playing firecrackers. But seems like (a) real pistol," she added. "Wanted to go home, but police warned 'Don't go out'."
