2 motorcycle riders injured in shooting

TWO men on a motorcycle were shot by unidentified men on board a white Sedan without plate number at Purok Riverside, Barangay Banago in Bacolod City early Thursday morning.

Wounded were Paterno Blesario, 25, and Kevin Tuando, 24, both residents of Purok Pine Tree, Barangay Bata.

Senior Inspector Jun Ray Batadlan, head of Police Station 3, said both victims were on their way home from a birthday party around 2 a.m. when they were chased by the assailants.

They were rushed to Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital.

Batadlan said they are eyeing group conflict as the motive although they do not discount the possibility that the incident was drug-related.
