Asked if the case can be related to the New Year celebration, Hernandez said it is an isolnated case as the shooting was apparently “intentional.”

“Hindi sya considered as related sa New Year kasi hindi sya galing sa fireworks or stray bullets,” Hernandez said.

Since December 21, JRMMC has, so far, recorded 22 firecracker-related incidents, victimizing mostly children.

While it may still be to early to make a statement, Hernandez said the number of incidents were observed to have gone down compared to last year’s record.

Meanwhile, six other persons were rushed to JRMMC for separate road accidents. No other information was available as of posting.
