An ethnic Indian man has been gunned down and two others seriously injured by motorbike-borne assailants in Malaysia's Penang state.

The deceased was identified as M Ravindran, 19, who was hit three times near the left ribs late last night.

Two other victims, aged 51 and 18, who were not identified, were hospitalised.

The three victims were outside a temple waiting for rains to stop in Butterworth town.

The suspects rode up to them before one of them whipped out a pistol and shot them.

Police said the gunmen had fired at least six shots as police have recovered six bullet shells at the scene.
