Junk shop owner shot

Five unidentified armed men robbed and shot a junk shop owner Friday at Brgy. 21 in Victorias City, Negros Occidental, police records show.

Supt. Alexander Munoz, Victorias police chief, yesterday said the armed men, who pretended to sell copper, entered the junk shop of Albino Delfinado, that is located within his residential compound, at Ditching Subdivision in the place, at about 11 a.m. Friday.

Three of the five suspects, who were armed with .45 and 9mm caliber pistols, ransacked the house of Delfinado, whom they shot twice in the left shoulder and abdomen. The victim, who survived the attempt on his life, is now being treated at a private hospital in Bacolod City.

The suspects took P150,000 in cash from Delfinado, investigations of the Victorias police showed.

Five empty shells and a live ammunition of a .45 caliber pistol were recovered at the crime scene, by Victorias City policemen.

Munoz said they are now tracking down the suspects, who, he believes, are also behind the series of robbery-hold-up incidents in the neighboring areas. He, however, withheld the names of some suspects.

Robbery-hold-up incidents were also reported in La Castellana, Moises Padilla and Cauayan towns and with two armed suspects have been arrested by the police in Himamaylan City and Binalbagan.* GPB
