ZAMBOANGA CITY – A security guard was killed while three others were wounded in a shooting at a private wharf here on Monday.
Maj. Francis Briones, Zamboanga City Police Office’s Station 11 chief, identified the fatality only as a Philix, 60, who was shot around 6:20 a.m. Monday at Taha Wharf in Barangay Baliwasan.
Wounded were Albasar Abdul Amiril, 37; Mohammad Taha Panolera Saddalani, 26; and Saramae Panolera Saddalani, daughter of the private wharf owner.
The Taha wharf caters to cargo wooden-hulled vessels plying to the southern Philippines’ provinces of Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi.
Investigation showed the victims were having a conversation when the gunman appeared and repeatedly shot them.
The gunman casually walked and left the scene on a motorcycle, police said.
Briones said Philix was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician while the other three victims were admitted for treatment. (PNA)
