A criminology graduate was wounded while his classmate escaped unhurt in a gun attack along San Jose Road Sunday morning.

Aldamer Mahamud y Suhaile, 25, of Upper Calarian, sustained a slight wound in the right ankle and was taken to the hospital.

Initial investigation showed that Mahamud together with his companion were riding on a motorcycle on their way to Don Pablo Lorenzo Memorial High School to take criminology licensure exam when two men riding tandem on another motorcycle appeared and the backrider opened fire on them along San Jose Road.

The gunmen sped away after shooting his target.

Police recovered three spent shells and two deformed slugs of .45 caliber pistol at the crime scene.

Meanwhile, Artem Resurrecion y Galindo, 28, of Upper Calarian was placed under investigation at the Tetuan Police Station after he used a fake P1,000 bill in buying a case of cigarettes at the store of Verza Janing in Purok 6, Tugbungan at noon last Sunday.

During investigation, police recovered two more P1,000 bills of fake currencies from Resurrecion’s possession.

The suspect was detained while the seized counterfeited bills were forwarded to the Central Bank for proper examination. – Dan Toribio Jr.
