A SEXAGENARIAN woman was critically wounded when she was shot in the head by her 60-year-old neighbor inside her house Sunday evening in Caloocan city.
Noemi Santos, 60, was inside her house on 436 Sampaguita Bliss, East Bagong Barrio, Bgy. 156, when the suspect, identified as Jamie Torno, also resident of East Bagong Barrio, barged inside at around 11:48 p.m. and shot her in the head point blank.
Thinking that the victim was already dead, the suspect immediately fled on board a motorcycle and escaped.
Santos is in critical condition at the Manila Central University (MCU) Hospital.
Northern Police District (NPD) Director P/Brig. Gen. Ronaldo Ylagan ordered the Caloocan police to launch a massive manhunt against the suspect while investigators are still determining the motive behind the frustrated murder.
