A barangay tanod of Cabaluay was shot to death outside his residence last Tuesday night.

City Police Office spokesperson Chief Insp. Joel Tuttuh identified the fatality as Antonio Victoria y Hipolito, 53, married, of Purok 8, Cabaluay. He sustained a bullet wound in the head.

Initial investigation disclosed that Victoria was on his way home around 7p.m. and while he was more or less four steps from their house, a gunman appeared and pumped a bullet into his head.

The gunman fled while victoria was rushed to the hospital. However at past 9 p.m., the tanod was declared dead by physicians.

Tuttuh said they were looking into both personal dispute and work related issue which could triggered the killing.

Victoria had been active in the barangay in giving information to the police regarding the activities of drug pushers and users. —Dan Toribio
