A MAN was shot dead while his companion was wounded when an alleged transaction of prohibited drugs went awry in a west coast village of Zamboanga city, the police reported Friday.
The police said the incident happened around 1:25 a.m. Thursday at Purok 3-B, Recodo village.
Killed was Vincent Camins, 39, and wounded was Melchor Araneta, 22, both residents of Mercedes village.
Investigation showed that the victims went to the village of Recodo allegedly to buy prohibited drugs, the police said.
A heated argument ensued between the victims and “the person they were dealing,” prompting them to hurriedly leave the place, the police said.
However, the victims were being tailed by unidentified gunmen who opened fire when they reached Purok 3 B, the police added.
The Police Station 9 is conducting further investigation to unmask the suspects. (Sunnex)
