THREE people, including a woman, were killed while another one was wounded in two separate violent incidents in the province of Zamboanga Sibugay, the police reported Sunday.
The first incident happened in the house of Kaser Amilhasan and his wife Sading in the village of Poblacion, Olutanga when a certain Arkan, Sading’s brother-in-law, who was armed with a bolo, attacked them around 11:42 a.m. Saturday.
The police said that Sading, despite wounded, managed to run and sought refuge at the house of Mujib Maruji, one of their neighbors although she was closely chased by Arkan.
Arkan died on the spot when he was allegedly shot with an M-16 Armalite rifle by a certain Najer, a relative of Sading, who saw the incident.
Najer then fled and went into hiding, the police said.
The couple was immediately brought to the Olutanga Municipal Health Center for medical treatment but was later recommended for medical evacuation to Margosatubig Regional Hospital in Zamboanga Del Sur.
Sading died while she and her husband were about to be transported to Margosatubig Regional Hospital, the police said.
The second incident happened in the village of Poblacion, Malangas town where Marlon Duma was shot by an identified gunman around 8 p.m. Thursday.
The police said Duma was talking to his brother in front of his house when shot by the suspect.
Duma was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician, the police said. (Bong Garcia)
