Police rushed to Kampung Serasot Bau at 1.15 am and arrested the suspect. They also seized two cartridges from him.

The suspect later helped police recover the shotgun from the spot where he had discarded the weapon after the incident. Police later recovered a spent shell.

A military camo vest was also confiscated from the hunter.
