A teenager was killed while a young man was wounded in two separate gun attacks recently.

Killed was Daryl Usman y Jamad, 19, of Sitio Buggok, Sta. Catalina.

Police said that Usman was with a certain Pong-Pong walking towards Sitio fishpond, Sta. Catalina to buy shabu when he was shot by a gunman around 9 p.m. last Wednesday. He sustained a bullet wound in the head and died on the spot.

Initial investigation showed that while Usman and Pong-Pong were walking three men blocked their path and tried to seize their personal belongings.

Usman and Pong-Pong ran towards the interior part of Sitio Fishpond but one of the three shot them hitting the former in the head.

Meanwhile, Jomar Cabalsa y Cauba, 21, married of Little Tondo, San Roque was shot and wounded by Esmeraldo Arquiza using a home-made shotgun called “sumpak” last Wednesday morning.

Cabalsa was rushed to the hospital with multiple bullet wounds in the body while the gunman escaped.

The gun attack was a result of a heated argument that broke out between the two of them around 8:30 a.m.

Police were still working on both cases. – Dan Toribio Jr.
