A person of interest in the shooting of alias Jefferson in Sitio Silangan 2, Barangay Tejero, Cebu City, at 4:20 p.m. on Sunday, June 23, 2024, has already been identified by the Waterfront police.

According to Police Major John Lambert Yango, the chief of Waterfront Police Station, they received information that the victim and the gunman had known each other.

Yango said that before the shooting, Jefferson was lying outside their house in Sitio Silangan 2 when the suspect arrived and told him not to sell salt anymore.

But the victim just laughed, which infuriated the suspect, who then shot him twice in the cheek and shoulder.

According to witnesses, the gunman fled on a black scooter motorcycle towards Pier 4, but he returned and shot the victim in the jaw once more.

The victim was rushed to the hospital after the incident.

He is now in stable condition.

Reports said that Jefferson would give his customers fine salt when he ran out of drug supply.

The culprit remains at large as of this writing. (AYB, TPT)
