A store owner was shot and wounded by his own customer at Aliangan Drive, Mampang last Sunday night.

Wounded was Roberto Ayco y Bitongga, 32, married. He sustained a bullet wound in the left cheek with the bullet exiting near his nose.

Initial investigation disclosed that Ayco was tending his store around 10 p.m. when an unidentified man appeared and pretended as a customer. He bought
a cigarette and soft drink and when Ayco handed to him the items, he pulled out a handgun and shot him at close range.

Relatives rushed Ayco to the hospital for treatment.

Police suspected the gunman used a .38 cal. revolver to shoot Ayco as no spent shell was  recovered at the crime scene. — Dan Toribio Jr.
