A female science high school teacher was shot and seriously wounded by one of two men riding on a motorcycle along Alfaro St., Tetuan yesterday morning.

The victim was identified as Maria Dolores Ong y Mariano, 55, of the Zamboanga City High School Main and a resident of Camanchile Drive, Zone 3.

A sketchy police report disclosed that Ong was riding on a tricycle heading for school at past 9 a.m., when two men riding tandem on a motorcycle appeared and the backrider shot her in the body.at the junction of Estrada and Don Alfaro St. fronting the fruit stands.

The gunmen sped and disappeared amid the crowded street.

Ong was rushed to a private hospital by the same tricycle and was placed under observation.

It was learned that Ong is teaching summer classes at ZCHS Main.

Men of the Tetuan police station under Chief Insp. Elmer Acuña were still working on the case.

The victim’s co-teachers have expressed disbelief on the shooting of Ong as they know she has no enemy. They and her relatives have likewise appealed to authorities to get the perpetrator or perpetrators and send them to jail. – Dan Toribio Jr.
