LETRAN back-up point guard Franz Dysam underwent a successful bullet extraction operation on Monday as he continues to be under tight security at an undisclosed hospital in Metro Manila, according to Letran athletic director Fr. Vic Calvo, O.P.
Calvo, also the school’s representative to the NCAA management committee, said four bullets were removed from Dysam, who was shot early Saturday evening on his way home from Letran’s game against Lyceum in an ambush that led to the death of his girlfriend Joan Sordan.
Dysam was hit by six bullets, but two exited his body. Sordan was only hit by a single bullet, but it proved fatal.
X-rays results relayed to Calvo showed the bullets missed Dysam’s major organs, although the timetable for his recovery remains uncertain.
“Depende kung walang tinamaang buto,” Calvo said.
Calvo said the whole Letran basketball team on Sunday attended mass where the Knights were “debriefed of their feelings at trauma para may closure.”
As to the ongoing police investigation about the crime, Calvo said only “two to three leads” are now being pursued.
