Kuala Lumpur airport shooting suspect tried to flee Malaysia by changing car plates, using fake IDs

The man is also believed to have obtained the gun illegally from a neighbouring country, the Bukit Aman CID director said.

Among the items seized were a Glock 19 pistol, a magazine containing eight bullets, a box containing 24 bullets, a Honda Civic and six mobile phones.

The police chief said the suspect had planned the shooting himself and did not have help from other people. The police previously said the suspect had a personal vendetta against his wife and that they were in the process of getting a divorce.

“After the suspect opened fire at KLIA, the man did not go anywhere else or meet any individual to ask for help, but instead continued his journey to Kelantan,” he said.­­

An examination showed that the suspect’s mental health is normal, he added.

Hafizul arrived at Kota Bharu Magistrate’s Court at about 8.25am on Tuesday, escorted by several police officers. He was remanded for another seven days to facilitate investigations.

Selangor police chief Hussein Omar Khan said on Monday that several improvements will be made to tighten security at KLIA.
