Stray bullets kill woman in Barili town

Monday, July 17, 2017

STRAY bullets killed a 40-year-old woman and wounded her 16-year-old daughter in Balaw village, Barili at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 16.

Police identified the fatality as Mercy Inad, who succumbed to gunshot wounds in her right arm, armpit, and left chest, while her daughter's neck was grazed.

Investigation showed Inad and her daughter were not the real targets. It was Benjamin Pedrosa who was standing near them.

The victims were watching a basketball game before the incident.

The perpetrators arrived and aimed at Pedrosa, who ran after he noticed them.

Police are still clueless on the gunmen's identities. (KAL/SunStar Cebu)
