WATCH: Nurse shot by unidentified gunman in Cebu

An unidentified gunman is still on the loose after he shot a nurse over road rage incident in Cebu.

CEBU CITY — A nurse was wounded in the leg after he was shot by a still unidentified gunman during a traffic altercation on F. Sotto Street, Barangay Kamputhaw, in Cebu City at about 3 a.m. on Sunday.

The victim, Ephraim Montalbo Nuñal, was brought to private hospital for treatment as the police worked to identify the perpetrator, who fled with a female companion on board a dark-colored Mercedes Benz with plate number UNI 731.

PO3 Nicolo Gonzales of Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) homicide section said they had yet to trace the owner of the vehicle with the Land Transportation Office although they believed the suspect to be a foreigner or a Filipino of Chinese descent.

Gonzales said the road rage started when the Mercedes Benz crisscrossed the narrow two-lane street before stopping in the middle of the road.

Montalbo, who was driving a Toyota Altis behind the Benz, honked at the driver of the Benz so he could pass.

Instead of moving his car, the driver of the Benz got out of his vehicle, accompanied by a woman, and kicked the car of Montalbo.
The man tried to punch Montalbo but the latter parried the blow. The man went back to his car and took a gun.

Video taken by a motorist behind Montalbo showed a man with a gun confronting Montalbo, who had also gotten out of his car. Suddenly, the gunman shot Montalbo four times, the video showed.

Although wounded, Montalbo used his cellphone to take a picture of the license plate of the Mercedes Benz as it sped away.
The police later recovered two slugs of a .22-caliber pistol and a live ammunition from the crime scene.

Authorities are asking the public to report to their office if they know the identity or whereabouts of the gunman.[via Inquirer.net]
