Gunmen opened fire on a Smart cell site at Sitio Marangan, Muti last Thursday night.

City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin De Ocampo disclosed that gunmen believed to be extortionists arrived at the cell site around 6:50 p.m. and suddenly fired their rifles on the Smart tower.

De Ocampo said the gunmen hurriedly left the place and disappeared in the bushes.

Men of the Curuan and Sangali Police Stations and troops from the Army’s 14 DRC rushed to the place and tried to run after the gunmen.

During ocular inspection, police found out that a portion of the tower was damaged by bullets. No one was wounded in the attack.

De Ocampo disclosed that the police were looking into extortion as the possible motive behind the attack. — Dan Toribio Jr.
