A 12-year-old child was hit by a stray bullet at Purok Kamunggay, Barangay Alegria, Pagadian city last Wednesday.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office-9 Information Officer, identified the victim as Lovel Makiling Gabon, Grade 8 student of the Danlugan National High School.

Gabon was buying from a store in the area when she heard a burst of gunfire from a group of men who were engaging in a heated discussion nearby.

Gabon ran away from the area and dropped to the ground but was horrified to see blood coming out of the upper portion of her body.

It was later found out that the child was hit by a stray bullet at the upper left part of her shoulder.

The victim was immediately brought to the Zamboanga del Sur Medical Center for treatment.  (Ely Dumaboc)
