An unidentified man was killed while a passerby was wounded in what appeared as another drug-related shooting rampage in Purok 1-B Recodo at noon yesterday.
The fatality sustained a bullet wound in the body and died on the spot while Jorjack Pugaja, a native of Imelda, Zamboanga Sibugay was hit by a stray bullet and was taken to a hospital.

A sketchy police report disclosed that a certain Almin Daris, a known drug pusher in Recodo, had figured in a heated argument with an unidentified man, during which Daris drew a handgun and shot the man. Pugaja, who was in the vicinity was hit by a stray bullet in the body.

The body of the slain man was taken to the Villa Funeral Parlor for post mortem examination.
Operatives of the Ayala Police Station led by Supt. Hado Edding went to the house of Daris but he was no longer around. Recovered inside the house was a holster of .45 caliber pistol.

Police have tagged Daris as a notorious drug pusher in Recodo.
The barangay has taken over the place of Rio Hondo and Baliwasan as the most notorious place for shabu pushing.

Several shooting incidents have taken place in Recodo in recent months, all related to shabu deals. — Dan Toribio Jr.
