A lawyer and a holdup suspect were wounded in a shootout that broke out during a holdup inside the Gaisano Mall in Pagadian City last Sunday.

A police report disclosed that five gunmen carrying hammers entered the mall and proceeded to the ML Lhuiller Pawnshop outlet where they announced a heist.

Police said that some of the holduppers pointed their guns on the security guards while others hammered the glass shelves where they scooped several assorted jewelry items. The guard fought out triggering a shootout. Atty. Beverly Travero who was at the mall was hit by a stray bullet. Police said that one of the five holduppers was also wounded.

The suspects  escaped aboard three motorcycles with the loot.
