A MALE teenager was injured after he was shot by a fisherman at Barangay Old Poblacion, Escalante City, Negros Occidental Tuesday, October 3.
The name of the 15-year old victim was withheld by the police.

The minor-victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was rushed to a hospital.
Aresgado escaped bringing with him an improvised firearm but he was arrested in a hot pursuit operation.
He was released from detention after the victim's family decided not to file charges against him.
