JOHOR BARU: A Sarawakian liquor dealer was shot dead execution-style in front of his wife and sister along the busy Pesiaran Molek yesterday.
Wong Bak Wei, 42, his wife and sister were on their way to Taman Molek from their home in Taman Permas Jaya at about 10am when their car was knocked on the right side by a vehicle going in the same direction.
Thinking it was a minor accident, Wong stopped by the roadside as did the driver of the other car.
As Wong alighted to check the damage to his car, the driver of the other vehicle got out and walked towards him and fired a single shot to his right temple.Initial investigations revealed that the gunman's motive was to kill Wong and not robbery. The gunman did not take anything from Wong's wife and sister or from their car. Instead, he walked back to his car and drove off.
