TABUK CITY, Kalinga March 12 – A 19-year old teenager was injured after he was shot by a still unidentified gun-wielding suspect while he and his friends were passing in front of a residence at Purok Datu, Bulanao, here, Monday night.
Police authorities identified the injured individual as Rodolfo Alcantara Anog, 19 native of Calaccad, Tabuk City, Kalinga.
Initial police investigation showed that the victim and his town companions passed by a residence while they were walking towards a certain direction when they heard a gunshot that emanated from a still undisclosed direction.
After a few moments, the victim told his friends that he was shot because of blood stains on his forehead and shoulder that prompted them to rush the former to the Almora General Hospital for medical treatment of the gunshot wound that he sustained.
Probers conduct a hot pursuit operation against the possible suspect who perpetrated the crime but their efforts were in vain, thus, they are appealing to possible witnesses to come to the open and identify the suspect in the said shooting incident.
