Criminals boldly went inside a crowded public market  yesterday afternoon and shot a man within full view of market goers.

A police report identified the victim as Ferdinand Tampalan, a resident of Amour Village, San Jose Gusu.

The incident occurred inside the main public market in Zamboanga City at around 3:20 p.m. yesterday.

The victim was rushed immediately to the Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC) for treatment.

Witnesses said that they heard a gunshot but were not able to identify the suspects nor the victim immediately because the area was crowded due to people preparing for the Muslim religious holiday of Eid Al Fitr.  (Dan Toribio)
