A pedicab driver was shot dead by a gunman in Logoy Grande, Talon-Talon last Wednesday afternoon.

The fatality was identified as Gajir Lakibul y Sali, 18, single. He sustained a bullet wound in the forehead and died while undergoing treatment.

Police said the shooting happened at past 5 p.m. while Lakibul was driving his pedicab on the way to Logoy Diutay.

Initial investigation disclosed that Lakibul was on his way to Logoy Diutay when a gunman blocked his way and shot him at close range and in front of many people.

The gunman walked casually when Lakibul fell on the ground.

Residents and passersby scampered in different directions after witnessing the shooting.

Lakibul was rushed to the Zamboanga City Medical Center where he expired while undergoing treatment.

The other night, a certain Nasser, a house caretaker was shot dead by an unidentified assailant near a pedicab parking area in Logoy Grande, Talon-Talon.

Authorities would not say if these latest series of violent incidents in Talon-Talon and Mampang is linked to the spate of killings inthe two barangays  several months ago that had put the area under siege.
