THREE per­sons were in­jured in a shoot­ing in­ci­dent at Barangay An­du­lauan in Ilog, Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6.

Wounded were Rey Men­odi­ado,52, a driver of the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion (Deped); Ele­sio Villa, 38, a se­cu­rity guard, both res­i­dents of the said vil­lage; and Arnold Cordero, 47, of Tal­isay City, a driver of a con­struc­tion firm.

Po­lice records showed that the three vic­tims were hav­ing a cof­fee at a store when sus­pect Jerry Ar­roz, 50, ar­rived and al­legedly shot them past 6 a.m.

The sus­pect then fled.

Ar­roz al­legedly tar­geted Villa and Cordero after learn­ing that one of them is ad­mir­ing the woman he is court­ing. Men­odi­ado was hit by a stray bul­let.

Po­lice said Ar­roz com­mit­ted the crime be­cause of jeal­ousy.

All three vic­tims were brought to a hospi­tal.*
