Kuala Lumpur police chief Mazlan Lazim said police found 26 casings for 5.56mm ammunition at the scene after receiving a report of the incident at 9.30pm.

“An initial investigation also found 18 A4-size paper sheets showing pictures of two men believed to be Chinese,” he said in a statement today.

He said all the papers were found 22m from the location of the shooting.

He said police were conducting an investigation, including checking closed-circuit television cameras around the scene.

“The police are also checking in detail to determine whether the case is related to another shooting at a nightclub, also here, prior to this,” he said.

However, Mazlan said no one was injured in the incident.
