1 dead, another hurt in Cotabato City gunfight
COTABATO CITY—-Unidentified gunmen traded shots in the middle of a busy road in this city’s commercial district on Wed (Jan. 15).
In a report submitted to Col. Portia Manalad, Cotabato city police director, investigators said the gunfight occurred along Jose Lim Sr. Street, leaving one dead and another wounded.
Scene of the crime operatives found two caliber .45 pistols and spent shells inside a silver sedan carrying a slain gunman, and a wounded one.
The car had a police commemorative plate.
