Earlier, I had blogged here and here about 19-year old Cheng Jun Wei, who was used as a human shield. She was shot, suffered head injuries and subsequently passed away two days later

Shooting Victim Laid To Rest

JOHOR BARU: The nineteen-year-old girl who died after sustaining injuries to her head was laid to rest in an emotional ceremony.
Cheng Jun Wei, who succumbed to her injuries on Thursday, was the niece of Johor Motorcycle and Scooter Trader Association chairman Datuk Chen Kim Hock.
The girl was allegedly injured after a security guard opened fire on three robbers who had used her as a human shield while trying to escape with stolen goods on Tuesday night.
When met during the victim’s funeral ceremony at the Tiong Hua Crematorium here, Chen said that he was in Sabah when the incident occurred.
Emotional ceremony: Family members and friends following Jun Wei’s funeral procession at Tiong Hua Crematorium in Johor Baru yesterday.
He explained that Jun Wei and her family were in the midst of moving to a new house in Taman Suria after staying temporarily at the house in Taman Majidee, which he owns.
“She was a wonderful girl with good prospects. She was very bubbly and I am still shocked that such a thing occurred,” he said.
Commenting on reports in the media, Chen hoped that the media would stop speculating and pointing fingers at any party.
“My niece suffered a coma after she was shot.
“She succumbed to her injuries and we as a family are still reeling from the news,” he said, adding that he hoped the media would report the matter accurately and not simply make up stories.
Chen insisted that the police should be given time to investigate the matter and praised Johor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff for enabling the post-mortem to be done expediently on Friday.
Meanwhile, Jun Wei’s father Cheng Yong Sang, 51, said that his family was still in shock over the loss of Jun Wei, who was the youngest of four siblings.
“I was very close to her as she often confided in me if she had any problems. We are devastated and the reality has not fully sunk in yet,” he said.
A Facebook page dedicated to Jun Wei, better known as Bobo Cheng to her friends, has recorded more than 18,000 condolences messages.
DCP Mohd Mokhtar said a task force had been formed to investigate the matter.
He also urged anyone with information to contact the police hotline at 07-2212999 or the nearest police station.
