MANILA -- A woman from Iloilo City was hit by a stray bullet on Christmas Eve.

The victim, identified as Donna Padol, was inside her house in Mandurriao, Iloilo City when she heard something hit the wall of their house.

When she checked, she found an empty bullet shell inside her house. The bullet also bore a hole through a pipe and a tree near her house.

Padol sustained wounds on her nose because of the stray bullet. Judging from the trajectory of the bullet, authorities believe that the gunman was only three kilometers away from Padol's house.

According to records of Mandurriao PNP, last October, Padol filed an indiscriminate firing complaint against an unidentified person from the nearby barangay of South San Jose Molo.

The police are still investigating the incident. -- with reports from Nony Basco, ABS-CBN News Iloilo
