A PUBLIC school teacher got injured after he was shot by an unidentified gunman in Barangay Poblacion III, Carcar City, Cebu on Friday.
Edgardo Morano, 52, was wounded in the left arm, said SPO3 Jorame Tanudtanud of Carcar City Police Station.
Morano, who teaches in Upland Elementary School, was on his way home at 3:30 a.m. after buying food for breakfast when the attack took place.
The suspect on board a motorcycle pulled over and shot the victim, who was standing in front of a chapel at that time.
Morano was rushed by a motorcycle-for-hire driver to Carcar City District Hospital. He was transferred to a hospital in Cebu City for further treatment.
Tanudtanud, when interviewed by Sun.Star Cebu, said Morano reportedly had a quarrel with a neighbor earlier. He refused to name the neighbor as they are still investigating the reason why the two fought.
Tanudtanud said Morano, a native of Butuan City, recently transferred in Carcar City together with his family.

Orland Evangelista, 26, died from gunshot wounds in his neck and chin.
PO3 Arthur Ariate of the Consolacion Police Station said the motorcycle-for-hire driver was having a conversation with his friend past 3 a.m. outside the chapel.
The two suspects, who allegedly wearing masks, arrived and shot Evangelista from behind four times.
