Two Policemen Killed in Police Station Ambush, Updated

SHAH ALAM: Two policemen were killed when a lone attacker attacked the Ulu Tiram police at 2.45am on Friday. The two policemen were identified as Konstabel Ahmad Azza Fahmi Azhar, 22, and Konstabel Muhamad Syafiq Ahmad Said, 24.

Koperal Mohd Hasif Roslan, was injured and is currently receiving treatment at the Sultan Ismail Hospital. The attacker had armed himself with a Walther P99 semi-automatic pistol and a H&K MP5 submachine gun, taken from the downed policemen.

The intruder who was wearing a face mask, was initially believed to be a member of the Jemaah Islamiyah militant (JI) group, was shot dead at the location after other policemen at the station were alerted to the attack. JI is infamous for the 2002 Bali bombings. The IGP later in the day, denied that the attacker belonged to JI though that his father was a member.

During a briefing to the Home Minister and other VIPs visiting the scene this morning, one of the policemen recounted how he fired a single shot at the assailant as he was trying to take a weapon from one of the down policemen. The minister in a post on Twitter or X identified the policeman as Konstabel Khairul Azhar.


The policeman tried to fire a second shot at the attacker but his pistol jammed. He then moved behind an armoured truck – a gate guard at the station – to clear his jammed weapon. The policeman than said he move around the back of the truck and seeing the attacker still standing but looking distressed, he fired another shot at the man. The policeman then said he started looking for his superiors at the police station.

The intruder – identified as a Malaysian – had stayed in his family house some 7km from the police station though it is unlikely his intention was known to the service.

Although Home Minister DS Shaifuddin Nasution claimed that the attack was conducted by lone assailant – the so called lone wolf – seven people including family members of the attacker were remanded this morning to facilitate investigations into the case.

The bodies of the two policemen were buried in their respective hometowns – Bidor, Perak and Gambang, Kuantan, later today.

  1. firstly rip

    secondly there’s a need to review police TTS programme

    also probably start looking to arm police with taser as standard issue alongside their service gun?

  2. Ngl everytime I go to police station I get the chills when policemen are guarding with automatics at the front.

  3. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kAwh5v-qEvA&pp

    People often think that a gun will deter an attacker and for the most part it will but people who are desperate (or under heavy substance) would going to carry on attacking even when shot.

    I noticed that both the military and police is taught Taekwondo during basic training? I practiced WTF/Kukkiwon TKD myself since college (not that much afterwards) and even if I love TKD I don’t think it’s the best martial arts for “self defence”. A more eclectic martial arts like Silat or Jujitsu or would’ve been a better basis for law enforcement TTS programme
