Two persons were wounded when the gun of a private security guard accidentally went off  while he is on duty at the City Integrated Bus Terminal in Divisoria, this city last Monday night.

The victims were identified as Giovanni Octubre Dumadag, 24, a security guard detailed at the terminal and Arcon Valois Panes, 51, a bus dispatcher.

Dumadag and Panes sustained minor injuries in their foot and were taken to the hospital.

Police said that the handgun that accidentally went off is a 9mm pistol issued to Jimmy Defiesta Tubac, 24, also a security guard detailed at the terminal.

Investigation showed that Tubas was about to turn-over the gun to the incoming security guard when it accidentally went off hitting the ground.

At that time, Dumadag and Panes were in the area and were hit by tiny fragments coming from the concrete ground due to the impact of the bullet.

Tubac was taken to the police station for proper investigation while the gun was turned-over to the investigator. – Dan Toribio
