Men of the Tetuan police station under Chief Insp. Felix Martinez will forward to the City Prosecutor Office today a case of frustrated murder against two men who shot and wounded a 38-year-old woman in Morning Breeze, Tugbungan Thursday afternoon.

Martinez in an interview told DZT that they have unmasked the identities of the two men who were positively identified by a witness as the ones who shot Elvie Perez Pansensoy, 38, married, of Villa Asuncion, Tugbungan.

Martinez however refused to divulge the names of the suspects saying it would jeopardize the ongoing and continuous investigation of the case.

Martinez said it was Pansensoy’s companion who was at that time riding as backrider on her scooter when the two gunmen pumped a bullet into her head around 2:45 p.m.

The police station chief said after the shooting, they conducted a hot pursuit operation but the suspects were no longer in their house.

Martinesz described today’s filing of the case as “normal filing” where the fiscal on duty will evaluate the recommendation of the investigators before it will be raffled off to the court.

Martinez expressed optimistism that the case will prosper as they have gathered all the evidences and a sworn statement of the lone witness to make it airtight.

Pansensoy and her gay companion were riding on a scooter on their way home coming from the house of the suspects in Morning Breeze, Tugbunga. They were chased by the two men aboard a another motorcycle and the backrider shot her in the head.

Pansensoy’s companion told the police that he was able to recognize the suspects as the same persons whom they visited in the Tugbungan house.

Pansensoy was in critical condition and is still confined in a private hospital. – Dan Toribio Jr.
