PETALING JAYA: Police shot dead a soldier and wounded another when they tried to rob an illegal cyber cafe in Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh here yesterday.

The soldiers, who were armed with a Glock semi-automatic pistol and a 'kerambit', had gone into the shop, unaware that there were two policemen posing as customers inside.

Selangor police chief Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah said the two men knocked on the cafe's back door before they were let in by its operator about 6.45am.

"Soon after they entered the cyber cafe, one of the men took out a Glock pistol and ordered the operator to hand over all the money. 
"The undercover police officers, who were in the middle of an operation, confronted the suspects and a shootout ensued."

He said the man with the pistol was shot dead, while his accomplice, who was wounded, ran away. The two policemen were unhurt.

"About an hour after the shootout, police received information that the second suspect had gone to Damansara Damai and he was arrested there.

"We believe that the robbers might have had another accomplice, who drove the wounded suspect in a black Naza Citra to Damansara Damai."

Meanwhile, a military spokesman confirmed that the two men were attached to the Military Police Training Centre (Pulapol) -- the dead man was a staff sergeant and his wounded accomplice was a ranger.
