MIRI, July 17: Four auxiliary police personnel of an estate in Ladang 3, Bekenu, here were threatened by an individual with a shotgun while conducting their daily patrol on Monday.

The alleged incident reportedly happened around 9.30am.

Just before the incident, the four auxiliary police personnel entered the estate to conduct their routine patrol. When they made a pit stop, they suddenly heard the sound of gunshots fired.

Minutes later, an individual known to them emerged from nearby bushes with a shotgun in hand, aimed at one of the auxiliary police personnel.
