1 killed, another wounded in two separate shootings in Zamboanga


Unidentified woman was killed while a former government employee was also seriously wounded in the separate shooting incidents at Barangay Dulian and Barangay Pasobolong on Friday night.

A report reaching Police Station 7 disclosed that Barangay Chairman Myrna Vicroy reported that an unidentified female cadaver was found at the barangay road of Zone 1, Barangay Dulian at about 7:55 p.m.

Investigator-on-case PO2 Alwashier Ladja conducted an ocular investigation and discovered that the victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds in the different parts of the body causing her instantaneous death.

Recovered at the crime scene were 3 spent shells and a slug of Caliber .45 Pistol, a pair of earrings and a color pink wristwatch, which authorities believe are the personal belongings of the victim.

PO2 Ladjaa said that the corpse of the victim was brought to Villa Funeral Homes and it still remains unclaimed as of this report.

The police are still facing a blank wall on the identity of the victim  as well as the motive of the incident.

Meanwhile, Police Station 4 revealed that a retired Commission on Audit (COA) officer identified as Benjamin Ventura y Garcia, 58, was also shot while driving an Isuzu multicab bearing plate number AEG 862 along the road of Barangay Pasobolong, this city.

Ventura suffered a gunshot wound in the neck but he still managed to drive to Mindanao Sanitarium Hospital to seek medical assistance. He was later transferred to Zamboanga Peninsula (ZAMPEN) hospital for further medical treatment.

Investigation conducted showed that the victim was on his way home when the 2 unidentified riding-in-tandem suspects positioned at the junction of the bypass and barangay road suddenly opened fire at Ventura’s vehicle.

Probers said the victim’s vehicle incurred 2 bullets holes. Police also recovered 2 spent shells of Caliber .45 pistol at the crime scene.

The suspects fled on board their motorcycle towards unknown direction after shooting Ventura.

Motive of the incident is still being established by PO3 Joel De Leon, investigator-on-case. (Eugene A. Lasprilla)
