Two minors landed in the hospital after being accidentally shot with a relative’s firearm in Sitio Dulian, Calabasa last Saturday afternoon.

The victims were identified as Artemio Bulanun y Bernardo, 15 and Jake Fernando y Agan, 14, both of Calabasa.

Both were taken to the Paragas Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Police said that at around 1 p.m. that day, Bulanun took a.45 caliber pistol reportedly owned by his uncle Alan Tumambid, and played with the firearm together with Fernando.

A few minutes later, one of the victims accidentally squeezed the trigger of the firearm, which went off and hit both of them.

The two minors were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Tumambid, meanwhile, was placed under investigation. – Dan Toribio
