A minor was shot and wounded after boldly confronting a homeowner in a robbery attempt in Zone 6, Boalan last Wednesday.

A police report identified the suspect as James Francisco y dela Cruz, 17 years old.

According to the report,  house owner Miguel Gonzales y Solano caught the suspect in the act of escaping after carting away P791 in cash and a cellphone from his home at around 11:35pm last Wednesday.

Francisco initially tried to flee from the house owner.

After a few seconds however, Francisco stopped from running and confronted Gonzales, who aimed a gun and shot the former.

Francisco, who was hit at the back portion of his body, was brought to the Zamboanga City Medical Center while Gonzales surrendered to the police.

Gonzales was set free after Roderick Francisco, the father of the suspect, refused to file charges against the homeowner. (Dan Toribio)
