Thursday, February 21, 2013
THE police are conducting a probe to unmask the lone gunman behind the motorcycle robbery that injured a habal-habal driver in Zamboanga City.
Senior Inspector Arlan Delumpines, local police’ Criminal Investigation and Detection Management (CIDM) chief, said the incident happened around 10:30 a.m. Thursday in the village of San Jose Gusu, west of the city.
The victim was identified as Roderick Bustamante, 37, a resident of Sinunuc village, who suffered three gunshot wounds in the body.
Initial investigation showed that Bustamante was buying medicine at a drugstore when he was killed.
The motive of the incident was carnapping since the suspect carted away the victim’s motorcycle upon fleeing, Delumpines said.
Responding policemen have recovered two empty shells of caliber .45 pistol at the crime scene. (Bong Garcia)
