COTABATO CITY—An unidentified man was killed while eight others were injured when two men riding in tandem on a motorbike fired on a tricycle in Barangay (village) Timbangan in Shariff Aguak on Wednesday evening, a military official said Thursday.

Colonel Cirilito Sobejana, commander of the 601st Infantry Brigade based in Tacurong City, said the slain man was walking on a dirt road where the tricycle was also passing by when he was hit by a stray bullet.
