A 15-year-old boy of Maasin was shot two times at Zone 6, Cawit last Friday afternoon.

Ryan Bernardo y Tumaban of Zone 1, Maasin, sustained bullet wounds in the chest and right leg.

Police said Bernardo was shot by Algibel Pulalon of Maasin.

It was gathered that Pulalon’s hand gun accidentally went off hitting Bernardo’s right leg around 4:40 p.m.

Witnesses told the police that Pulalon took Bernardo to his motorcycle and drove for the hospital.

However when they reached a grassy area in Cawit, Pulalon dropped Bernardo to  the ground and shot him again in the chest. He then sped away, while Bernardo stood up and managed to seek help from residents who brought him to the hospital for treatment.

Bernardo was confined and placed under observation.

Police have launched a hot pursuit operation for the arrest of Pulalon. – Dan Toribio Jr.
