A nine-year-old girl was wounded after his uncle’s gun accidentally went off hitting her at Purok 6, Recodo last Sunday afternoon.

Satra Muhmin Y Andan sustained a bullet wound at the back of his left shoulder. The bullet exited on her front neck.

Police said Satra was taken to the Zamboanga City Medical Center for treatment.

Initial investigation disclosed that Satra was playing apple-apple, locally known as bar-bar, at the house of his uncle identified as Talingan Andan who at that time was cleaning his hand gun that accidentally went off hitting her.

Andan left the place and escaped with the handgun.

Police have readied charges against Andan. – Dan Toribio Jr.
