Man shoots nurse in a road rage

A 33-YEAR-OLD nurse suffered two gunshot wounds on his leg after he was shot by an unidentified man Sunday, March 19, in F. Sotto St., Barangay Kamputhaw, Cebu City.

Police Officer 3 Nicolo Gonzales said Ephraim Nuñal, a nurse who hails from Talisay City, is willing to press charges against the unidentified man onboard a dark colored Mercedes Benz with plate number UNI 731, who was caught on cam shooting the victim.

“The victim is already okay. We can consider what happened as a road rage because the victim alleged that when he honked at the suspect for stopping at the center of the road, the man disembarked from his car and started kicking the victim's vehicle,” Gonzales said.

Based on the video provided by the Homicide Section of the Cebu City Police Office, the two faced each other, seemingly engaged in a verbal fight while the suspect's female companion tried to pacify him.

As expected by the victim, the suspect tried to punch him but he managed to evade the attack.

The man went back inside his car and pulled out a caliber .22 pistol and shot the victim several times. Nuñal crumpled near his Toyota Altis as he suffered gunshot wounds on his left thigh and right ankle.

A concerned citizen rushed Nuñal to nearby private hospital while the suspect hurriedly fled the scene, as captured in the footage.

Investigators recovered two empty slugs and a live bullet of a caliber .22 pistol.
