Jakarta. A sports car dealership in South Jakarta was shot by an unknown assailant in the early hours of Sunday (12/06) adding to a long list of mysterious shootings in the capital.
Detik.com reported that the Lamborghini dealership on Jalan TB Simatupang, Cilandak, was shot at three times by an unknown gunman at 2 a.m. The dealer's glass windows were shattered but no one was injured in the incident.
“There are three spots [where the dealership was] hit,” the portal quoted Adj. Sr. Comr. Hendy Kurniawan, the Jakarta police's violent crime division chief as saying.
Police however have only recovered one projectile.
Hendy said the shots were likely fired from the nearby Jakarta Outer Ring Road toll road, just meters away from the dealer.
“We haven't confirmed this yet, because we have to perform ballistics test,” he said.
Hendy said police are recovering footage from surveillance cameras at the dealership and surrounding buildings.
“Particularly those facing the toll road. [The dealership] do have CCTV but it is not facing the street. It is facing in,” he said.
Lamborghini Jakarta public relations manager Amanda Herdiani said her office was shocked by the incident.
“We never had any problem. We never had any threats. Everything is fine. We are definitely shocked by this incident,” she told reporters at the scene of the crime.
The case adds a long list of mysterious shooting in the capital, mainly using high powered air guns or home made firearms.
In November, two men riding a motorcycle fired a single shot at the Kemang, South Jakarta, headquarters of smartphone-based motorcycle taxi service Go-Jek.
Two months prior, an office building belonging to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resource in Kuningan, South Jakarta was also shot by an unknown gunman firing from the nearby Casablanca elevated road.
