Crime of passion eyed in Alijis shooting

BY WAYNE A. BIGSAT

Police investigators are looking into a crime of passion behind the shooting of a 31-year-old driver, identified as Kim Ryan Canillo, of Sto. Niño, Brgy. Handumanan, early this week at Bangga Metal, Alijis-Murcia Road, Brgy. Alijis, Bacolod City.

Police Capt. Elmer Bonilla, Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) Police Station 7 commander, in an interview, reported that they are looking into a misunderstanding between Canillo and the suspect.

Initial investigation said the victim was walking along Bangga Metal while talking on his phone when an unidentified person placed his arm on the victim and without provocation, shot him on the upper left portion of his neck and grabbed his phone.

The suspect fled with an accomplice who was driving a motorcycle going south to Brgy. Handumanan area according to recent CCTV footage.

The incident left the victim with a gunshot wound on his neck and is now at the Bacolod Adventist Medical Center awaiting surgery.

Bonilla added they already have a person of interest but could not disclose the identity of the suspect but if witnesses positively identify him, they will immediately apprehend the suspect.

Records showed this was the 12th shooting incident that happened in Bacolod City in the month of June, but Bonilla denies this is related to the successive shootings around the city.

He added that deployments of police officers on mobile patrol with the augmentation of barangay tanods will be done to ensure the safety and security of the public and prevent similar incidents from happening again.*
