Former detainee shot dead


A former detainee was shot dead at the vicinity of Purok 8, Barangay Recodo, Zamboanga City, last Monday night.

The victim was identified as Omar Fiel y Tihamsi, 24, single and a resident of Purok 6, Recodo.

He sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the different parts of his body and was rushed by the responding police personnel of Police Station 9 to Brent Hospital,but later expired.

SPO1 Erwin Oreta, investigator-on-case, said that they recovered 4 spent shells of a caliber.45 pistol, a cellular phone, a power bank, 2 disposable lighters and a bicycle.

Police investigation shows that the victim was driving his bicycle coming from the interior portion of Purok 6 heading towards the highway when he was shot by the unidentified suspect standing at a dimly lit area.

The suspect allegedly escaped towards the innermost portion of the barangay after the incident.

Further report disclosed that the victim was recently discharged from the custody of the Zamboanga City Jail for illegal drugs and he was also involved in a robbery incident where he stole an M14 Rifle last 2015.

SPO1 Oreta told Zamboanga Today that they are looking into the angle of illegal drugs and robbery as the possible motive of the crime.

A deeper investigation is still being conducted to identify the assailant and for his possible arrest. (Eugene A. Lasprilla)
