27-year-old shot dead in Brgy 13


A 27-year-old man was gunned down in Purok Boulevard, Barangay 13 in Bacolod City, at about 12:40 p.m. yesterday.

It was the fifth shooting incident in broad daylight in Bacolod since last month.

The victim was identified as Nicko Hosain, of Barangay 16 in Bacolod, who succumbed to a gunshot wound in the back, P/Maj. Jovil Sedel, Station 1 chief, said yesterday.

Investigation showed that residents heard three gunshots and later found Hosain lifeless at a narrow alley in Purok Boulevard.

The shooter remains unidentified, as of press time.

All angles are being considered but the police are initially looking into an old grudge and unpaid debts as the motive for the shooting, Sedel said.

Hosain had been previously charged for robbery in 2017 and physical injury in 2018, he said.

A pin gun was recovered near the body, Sedel also said.*
