A gunman who shot and wounded his uncle  was killed during a shootout with authorities who were serving a warrant for his arrest last Thursday.

The fatality was identified as Nurhassan Sabdani, of legal age, of Sitio Tarlangit, Barangay Baluno.

A police report showed that Sabdani and his uncle, identified as Salip Jahisim y Dundayin, Jr., 38,  had a misunderstanding two years ago due to family feud.

At around 6:30 p.m. last Thursday, Jahisim was standing along the road when Sabdani passed by aboard a motorcycle.

Upon spotting Jahisim, Sabdani turned back, alighted from his motorcycle and shot the latter three times.

The victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Yesterday morning, policemen of the Ayala Police Station under the supervision of Sr. Insp. Albert Alfaro conducted a follow-up operation at the house of Sabdani but he resisted and engaged arresting personnel in a shootout.
