Early Tuesday, police said that Vicente Loot, Daanbantayan, Cebu Mayor, was injured in an oddity firearm mishap inside his vehicle.

A spot report from the Police Regional Office 7 demonstrated that Loot was in his auto, alongside two others, when the occurrence occurred at around 8:40 in the evening of Wednesday. Loot whom President Rodrigo Duterte labeled as narco-general originated from a vigil for his supporter in Barangay Lanao, Daanbantayan on that day as per the police.

The mayor unconsciously sat on the weapon, incidentally shooting it with a slug hitting his left leg. Police said that he was quickly conveyed to Daanbantayan District Hospital. More than two weeks back, the mayor survived a trap in Barangay Maya in Daanbantayan.

His driver was harmed in the assault while a helper, his kids, and of course Loot, himself, appeared sound. The mayor rejected the likelihood the trap had anything to do with Duterte's tag on him as 'narco-general'.
