A MEMBER of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) was shot Tuesday evening in Jaro, Iloilo City.

PO3 Job J. Lujan, 36, of Sitio Little Janiuay, Brgy Tabuc-Suba was wounded in his nose after a gunman shot him with a caliber .38 revolver around 8:30pm the other day.

He was rushed to St. Paul’s Hospital for treatment.

Lujan was standing outside their house gate when he was shot. According to a son of the victim, Lujan was talking to three persons before the incident.

Lujan’s colleagues at the CIDG said the shooting may have something to do with their recent operation against an illegal video karera operator in the city.

Jaro police investigators recovered a live caliber .38 bullet from the crime scene.

Reports from the Iloilo City Police Office identified the gunman as a certain Rusty Jablo of Brgy. Cubay, Jaro.

S/Supt. Melvin Mongcal, ICPO director, ordered the Jaro police and the Iloilo City Mobile Group to chase and arrest Jablo.
