A businessman was wounded in a drive-by shooting incident Thursday here, a police official disclosed.

Lt. Raine Simyunn, Zamboanga City Police Office’s (ZCPO) newly-installed information officer, identified the victim as Jacob Gregorio, 39, a businessman.

Gregorio’s wife, Irene, 32, who was with him during the incident was unharmed.

Simyunn said initial investigation showed that the couple was shot by one of two men riding in tandem on a scooter-type motorcycle around 9:20 a.m. Thursday in Sitio Mala, Barangay Bolong, this city.

At the time of the incident, Jacob was driving a car with his wife on the way to the city proper coming from Barangay Curuan here.

Simyunn said that Jacob, who sustained a bullet wound on his left shoulder, was rushed to the hospital for treatment while the suspects sped toward the direction of Barangay Curuan.
