A 41-year-old man was shot and wounded at Purok 5B in drug infested Recodo shortly before 6 p.m. last Friday

Reynaldo Dela Cruz y Tejeros, married, of Recodo, sustained two gunshot wounds in the chest and was taken to the hospital.

Initial investigation showed that Dela Cruz was on his way home aboard a motorcycle when an unidentified man armed with a .45 caliber pistol appeared and shot him several times at Purok 5B.

Although wounded, De la Cruz managed to run and sought assistance from residents who rushed him to the hospital.

Police said the gunman sped away aboard a blue Honda Wave towards unknown direction.

Recovered at the crime scene was an empty shell of .45 caliber pistol.

Investigators were looking into drugs as possible motive behind the latest gun attack in that drug infested barangay. — Dan Toribio Jr.
