ILIGAN CITY – A 48-year old woman was hit by a stray bullet during new year revelries here.
The victim, Leni Bado, a resident of Purok 1 Diamond extension, barangay Hinaplanon, survived a bullet wound in her back.

The investigating team discovered a hole in the roof approximately 2 cm. in diameter and found a bullet from an unknown calibre inside the room.
