Valencia cops on alert
after shooting incident

The Valencia City Police Station is on alert following a shooting incident Tuesday, and the reported presence of vigilante groups in the town.

Valencia police officer-in-charge, Chief Insp. Alfonso Enriquez, said there are reports that vigilante groups are operating in the municipality to run after drug pushers, after Bryan Piñero, who is listed as among the top 5 drug personalities in the town, was injured in a shooting incident Tuesday.

Enriquez said he is saddened that during the shooting, students Reannedela Torre and Faith Que were hit by stray bullets while waiting for a ride to school. Piñero, dela Torre and Que are recuperating in two hospitals in the city.

Dumagueteña survives
‘salvaging' in Misamis

A woman from Dumaguete, who is believed to have survived an attempt on her life in Calamba, Misamis Occidental, was shipped back to the city early yesterday morning on board an inter-island vessel.

Aminah Tactacon Dampac, 43, of Barangay Candau-ay in Dumaguete, arrived on board a stretcher, and can only talk for a few moments, after being hospitalized for more than one month at the Community District Hospital in Calamba, Misamis Occidental.

She was rescued by the Calamba rescue team, headed by Roldan de Villa. A Barangay Sulipat kagawad asked for assistance after he found the woman at the roadside of the barangay near a ravine, unconscious and very weak, and could not talk because of blood coming out of her mouth, at about 7 a.m. on June 8.
