ZAMBOANGA CITY: Police shot dead a man, believed to be high on drugs, who went berserk and wounded five people, including a seven-year-old girl, with a sword in Zamboanga del Sur. Authorities tried to negotiate peacefully with Jose Carreon to surrender but he charged the officers like a raging bull and was shot after he hacked one of the policemen in the village of Silangit, Molave town, on Thursday afternoon. The injured victims were brought to the hospital with the girl, who incurred hack wounds in the head, face and hands.
