Two persons were injured during separate gun attacks just two hours apart in Barangay Talon-Talon last Wednesday.

At around 7 p.m., 42-year- old Arnel Francisco Pedro was on his way home together with his wife and children onboard their KIA Sportage wagon when their vehicle was ambushed by still unidentified men.

Upon reaching an area near Talon -Talon road, one of the two motorcycle-riding suspects approached the car and fired at Arnel.

The victim, who sustained a gunshot wound on the left cheek, managed to drive the vehicle to their residence.

He was later taken to the hospital for treatment.

At 9:30 p.m.,  35-year-old Basir Ampong Musin was on his way home after buying food from a store along Hawaii Drive when an unidentified suspect fired at him.

Musin was hit at the right arm but managed to escape his attacker by running towards his house.

The victim was brought to the Zamboanga City Medical Center for medical attention.

Musin was identified by police as a drug surrenderer.

The motives for both incidents are still under investigation.  (Dan Toribio)
