After the shooting, the suspects sped away while civilians rushed Mopac to a community hospital on board a pedicab.

However, the suspect, still on board a white pick-up vehicle, followed the pedicab until it reached the hospital. Before the hospital staff can load him into a stretcher, one of the suspects alighted from the pick-up and fired more shots at him using an M-16 Armalite rifle.

The gunmen, according to witnesses, fled toward Tacurong City.

Gonzales said a manhunt was launched to find the suspects. /ee
