TWO people, including a retired policeman, were wounded in a gun attack in a west coast village in Zamboanga City.
Wounded were Akim Jallao, 57, a retired policeman, and Josephine Justo, 34, said Zamboanga Peninsula police information officer Chief Inspector Ariel Huesca.
Huesca said investigation showed that Jallao was the main target of the suspects in the gun attack that took place around 5:50 p.m. Thursday in Sitio Suterville in the village of Camp Islam, 4.50 kilometers (km) west of this city.
Huesca said that Justo was hit by stray bullet when the riding-in-tandem suspects shot Jallao using a caliber .45 pistols.
Two of the four suspects were identified as Al Jambiran and Omar Jambiran, Huesca said.
He said investigation showed that Jallao was on his way to a fruit stand when the suspects shot the retired policeman also hitting Justo.
Both victims were rushed to the hospital for medical treatment.
The motive of the incident was believed to have stemmed by family feud involving the families of the Jambirans and the Jallaos, Huesca added.
