Motorcycle gunmen shot and wounded an employee of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University, police said Friday.
Maria Victoria C. Montaño, assistant to Ateneo president Fr Karel San Juan, was heading home in Tetuan village when unidentified assailants attacked her Friday evening. The victim was rushed to the hospital shortly after the shooting.
While Ateneo students con-demned the violence, the administration has yet to release their statement about the attack, whose motive is still unknown.
Meanwhile, a lone gunman shot a certain Ruben Barrera in Curuan village the same day. Police have now launched a manhunt to track down the assailant.
Gun attacks are not un-common in Zamboanga where hired killers are actively operat-ing and largely blamed for the spate of shootings and string of murders here.
