A FEMALE Korean national was shot in the face by a gun-for-hire suspect outside the Your Neighbor Laundry shop on P. Remedio St. in Brgy. Banilad, Mandaue City at 9:15 a.m, Monday, April 12.
In the initial investigation, Jiyoung Lee, the Korean national who works in a travel agency in Mandaue City, dropped her clothes at the laundry shop.
Her driver got off the car to send the clothes to the laundry shop’s counter.
According to the laundry staff, Sheila (not her real name), Lee is their regular customer.
During that time, Lee’s driver dropped off the laundry bag to Sheila, and then they heard two gunshots.
The driver immediately went outside to check and there they saw Lee in the car covered with blood.
Lee was immediately sent to the Mandaue City Hospital for immediate treatment and is now in stable condition.
Police Staff Sergeant Richard Cabello, investigator of the case, said Lee sustained gunshot wounds on the left side of her face and left arm.
He said the suspect was allegedly hired and personal motive is one of the angles being considered in the investigation.
Cabello said they are now focusing on capturing the suspect who was wearing a blue helmet, a mask, white long sleeves and denim pants, and was driving a Honda XRM motorcycle during the incident. (KFD)
