Alleged drug pusher shot dead


An alleged known drug pusher was shot dead by a still unidentified man at Aquino Drive, Barangay Baliwasan, Zamboanga City on Thursday night.

Investigator-on-case PO3 Had-Anuar Edding of Police Station 11 identified the victim as Mustafa Tangkian, of legal age and a resident of Barangay Talon-Talon.

Edding said the victim sustained a lone gunshot wound in his body and was rushed to Brent Hospital, but was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.

A spent shell of a caliber .45 pistol was recovered by responding police personnel at the crime scene.

Ocular investigation shows that the victim was playing toss coin when the suspect approached and ordered him to purchase illegal drugs. When the victim declined, the suspect pulled out a handgun and shot the victim, then hurriedly fled towards unknown direction.

A deeper investigation is being conducted to arrest the suspect.  (Eugene A. Lasprilla)
