An unidentified motorist was shot in the head while driving his vehicle along El Socorro main road on Tuesday afternoon.

Up to press time the driver’s identity was not confirmed. Police said some time after 3 pm the driver was driving a black Sylphy when an unknown gunman opened fire on him.

The driver who was shot in the head lost control of the vehicle causing it to crash. The driver then managed to get out but collapsed face down on the road in the vicinity of Geelal’s Supermarket.

Passers by in an attempt to get an identity on the badly wounded driver took a video of him gasping for breath and with blood seeping through the mouth and posted it on social media calling for “anyone who knows him.” Investigations are continuing.
