A seven-year-old boy was killed while other members of his family escaped death after unidentified gunmen sprayed their house with bullets in Barangay Dato, Siay, Zamboanga Sibugay at dawn last Sunday.

Police identified the fatality as Johnny Mondares. He succumbed to multiple pellets wounds on the different parts of his body.

A police report disclosed that the boy along with his parents were sleeping when gunmen opened fire at their house using a shotgun.

Johnny’s parents managed to get out of the line of fire but the boy was hit by the pellets.

The attackers escaped towards unknown direction while the victim was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police were clueless on the gunmen’s identities but they are looking into family feud as the possible  motive behind the attack. -- Noning R. Antonio
