Keningau district police chief deputy superintendent Douglas Nyeging Taong said the incident last Saturday in Kampung Kabangawong, Nabawan, some 180km from here happened when the victim went to his older brother’s house to confront him for “bullying” his 14-year-old son by asking him to buy a pack of instant noodles from the grocery store.
“Based on our investigations, the deceased, Peridan Rawang, was angry at his brother for asking Peridan’s son to go to the store to buy him a pack of Maggi mee.
“Peridan went to the suspect’s house nearby with a samurai sword and started arguing with him, claiming he was bullying his son,” he said when contacted by Malay Mail Online today.
Douglas said the incident was based on the 38-year-old suspect’s statement to the police.
The suspect recounted that the argument worsened and in the heat of the moment, he shot Peridan with the homemade gun.
The gun apparently belonged to Peridan, but was kept at the suspect’s house.
Peridan died on the spot due to gunshot wounds in his chest around 4.30pm.
A police team from Nabawan police station arrested the suspect about 6.20pm and seized a the gun and sword.
The older brother has been remanded for investigation under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
“The two brothers used to be close, and the suspect is feeling remorseful now,” Douglas said.
