Child hit by bullet in OUG shooting stable after second surgery


PETALING JAYA: The daughter of the real estate agent who was injured in a shooting which killed her mother in Taman OUG, Jalan Kelang Lama on Wednesday, is in a stable condition following a second surgery done on her.

The Sun Daily reported that the eight-year-old, who was hit by a stray bullet during the incident, underwent a second surgery at the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) to remove a bullet slug lodged in her liver.

The report quoted Kuala Lumpur CID chief SAC Rusdi Mohd Isa as saying that police are yet to ascertain the motive behind the killing, but have narrowed it down to a business the deceased, 32-year-old Wong Siu Ling, managed with her husband.

The couple are said to run a cosmetics business, but they were also involved in other ventures, including what some reports say, is a pyramid scheme in China.

Wong’s husband, a Datuk in his 30s, had also recently returned from a business trip in China, and the family were planning to go to Penang for a holiday soon.

Wong was gunned down while driving her Toyota Vellfire with her five children, aged between two and 13, and a maid in tow on Wednesday afternoon. Two men on a motorcycle rode up to the driver’s side of the vehicle and opened fire.

Wong died on the spot with wounds to her neck, while her eight-year-old daughter was hit by a stray bullet.

According to the daily, a relative of the deceased dismissed allegations that the victim’s husband had hired the killer.

She said the businessman was a loving husband and a family man.

Wong’s killing comes on the heels of a spate of shooting incidents which has plagued the nation in the past one month.
