CAMP DIEGO SILANG, La Union – Police authorities are now hunting down a suspect in the shooting of an Indian national and his employee Friday night in San Fernando City.
La Union police information officer Chief Inspector Artemio Infante identified the victims as Lal Mirchandani, 46, owner of SKM computer trading and his employee Roger Calderon.
A witness identified as ‘Jun’ said a power interruption and heavy downpour prevented the suspect from fatally hitting the victims who are both under observation at the Bethany Hospital and Ilocos Training Medical Center.
“Malakas ang ulan at kidlat at biglang nawalan ng kuryente kaya siguro hindi napuruhan yung mga biktima,” said Jun.
Concerned citizens meanwhile were able to describe the suspect’s getaway vehicle, a white Fortuner with plate number ZH5950. (Erwin G. Beleo)
