FIVE men deemed dangerous and on the wanted list met their end when they were cornered by police after a high-speed car chase on Saturday night.
The suspects showed no fear for the law and tried to force a police car off the road while firing shots at the police in Lorong Sungai Keramat in Klang, Selangor.
The five, believed to be from the notorious PCO Boy Gang, were said to be responsible for at least 10 armed robberies and assault cases in Selangor over the past year.
The suspects were said to be preparing for another robbery when confronted by the police who returned fire and gave chase through Taman Klang Utama.
The robbers, however, didn't go far. Their car went out of control and crashed into a monsoon drain.
Even then, the suspects remained defiant and in the ensuing shootout, all five were shot dead.

Police recovered a .45mm Remington pistol as well as six parangs and samurai swords from the car.
The suspects, all aged between 19 and 30, were from various parts of the Klang Valley.
Among those killed was a 29-year-old from Klang, said to be the group's mastermind.
"Initial investigations revealed that the Kelisa was reported stolen in Kajang on Nov 2," said Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm II Datuk Hasnan Hassan.
Police believe there are more gang members still at large and have launched a manhunt for them. They move in groups of four or five and target residential areas.
