Gun slaying is unstoppable in Zamboanga City.

This, as another man was shot dead in Suterville yesterday morning in yet another brazen daylight gun attack.

Slain was Joey Malaki y Mabolo, 30, single of San Roque and worker of an oil depot in Baliwasan Seaside.

Malaki sustained a lone gunshot wound in the head and died on the spot.

A police report disclosed that Malaki was on his way to work aboard a mountain bike when two men riding on a motorcycle chased him and the backrider pumped a bullet into his head while near the junction of Suterville and Baliwasan Seaside,

The assailants sped away after Malaki fell on the pavement.

A woman who requested anonymity said she did not see anybody and only heard a gunfire then saw a motorcycle leaving the place. She said she did not recognize the killers.

After the shooting, a group of students of an Islamic school nearby went up the roof of the school to see the victim’s body on the ground.

One of them identified as Jabir Bakil accidentally touched the primary line of the Zamcelco and almost got electrocuted.

The student fell on the ground due to the electric voltage and suffered burns in the body. He was rushed to a hospital.

Malaki’s gun slaying came thrree days after a businessman was shot and killed also in Balisawan Seaside last Saturday afternoon.

Hussin Naama y Ibrahim sustained multiple bullet wounds in the body and died on the spot.

The gunmen escaped aboard a get-away motorcycle.

Naama had just come from Tres Marias Wharf around 5:40 p.m. and while he was crossing the street to board a jeepney two gunmen appeared and one of them shot him several times.

The assailants then boarded a motorcycle driven by his cohort and sped westward. — Dan Toribio Jr.
