A college student was shot and wounded yesterday by his own neighbor along the barangay road of Taluksangay, this city.
Investigation chief of Culianan Police Station SPO4 Floro Napalcruz identified the victim as Jaafar Abubakar u Arif, 31, married, a Radiologic Technology (RADTECH) student of Universidad de Zamboanga (UZ) and a resident of the same barangay.
He sustained a lone gunshot wound on the right side of his body and was rushed to the Western Mindanao Medical Center (WMMC) for treatment.
Napalcruz identified the suspect as Hussin Juhari, of legal age, married, also of the said place.
Responding policemen recovered 3 spent shells and 2 slugs of Caliber .45 Pistol at the crime scene.
Initial investigation conducted by the police disclosed that prior to the incident, Juhari was bringing his children to Taluksangay Elementary School when he almost had a vehicular accident. Napalcruz told Zamboanga Today that Juhari suspected the victim as responsible in loosening the motorcycle’s break and upon seeing the latter, he immediately confronted him then without any provocation, shot Abubakar repeatedly.
The suspect hurriedly sped towards unknown direction after the incident.
A manhunt operation was launched against the suspect but yielded negative result. Appropriate case was readied by the police investigator against the suspect in court.
Personal grudge is being ruled as the motive of the incident since the two already had previous misunderstanding.
