2 wounded in shooting incidents in Bukidnon

A FARMER and another man were rushed to a hospital after they were shot in separate incidents in Bukidnon Monday, November 11.

Larawan sustained a gunshot wound in his face.

Operatives are conducting a hot pursuit operation against the perpetrator.

Investigators are also looking into the possible motives in the incident.

In Malaybalay City, a 67-year-old man identified as Antonio Guilaran was shot by a certain Michael Tsong in Barangay Sumpong, police said.

Authorities said the victim and his daughter were fighting when the suspect suddenly interfered and shot him.

The victim was hit on his nose while the suspect fled immediately.

Investigators are eyeing "misunderstanding" as possible motive in the incident.
