A bus conductor was accidentally shot and wounded by a security guard at the storage area of Rural Bus Transit at Covarrubias Drive, Divisoria last Friday afternoon.

The victim was identified as Roel Mosquera, 32, married, of Tubod, Lanao del Norte and a bus conductor of Rural Transit Bus. He was shot by Gocer Angeles, 25, of the Sagitarius Security Agency.
Mosquera sustained pellet wounds in the right palm and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

A police report disclosed that Mosquera and Angeles were joking as the former was questioning if the guard’s 12 gauge shotgun was defective or not.

Amid their bantering, Mosquera placed his right palm on the tip barrel of the gun and Angeles squeezed the trigger.

Both of them were terrified when the shotgun went off causing injuries on Mosquera’s right palm.
Police confiscated the shotgun, while Angeles was placed under investigation. — Dan Toribio Jr.
