Two men shot, live

Two persons were shot in Dumaguete on separate occasions over the weekend but miraculously lived to tell their tale.

Engr. Dickzon Rendal, 31, was going home from the Provincial Engineer’s Office, where he works, at about 5:30 p.m. last Friday. While passing through E.J. Blanco Ext. on his motorcycle, he leaned forward to check on his headlight when he heard a gunshot from a passing motorcycle with two men on board. {{more}}

Rendal thought nothing about it until he felt pain in his right ear a few seconds later. He then realized that a bullet had hit his ear. He stopped his motorcycle and examined his wound while the suspects passed by on their motorcycle but left him alone.

Rendal gave a description of the two suspects to the police and said he has no grudges against anyone. He, however, said he believes the incident may be work-related or a botched holdup attempt as he was carrying his laptop at that time.

A few hours later, a man driving his motorcycle was shot in the face by one of two men on a motorcycle.

The victim, Carl Rey Infante, 23, of Sta. Rosa St., was driving his motorcycle along Hibbard Avenue at 1:30 a.m. of Saturday when the suspects overtook his motorcycle and fired on him using a .45 caliber pistol.

The impact of the gunshot toppled Infante from his motorcycle but luckily for him, the bullet entered his left cheek and exited on his right cheek. Doctors pronounced him out of danger.

The suspects’ motorcycle was unmarked and the suspects were not immediately identified.
