Dead on the spot was Gerardo Ampong, 55, while seriously wounded was his wife Sheryl, 50. Gerardo succumbed to a gunshot wound on the head while his wife was wounded in her left shoulder.

A police report disclosed that the couple was on their way home from their store located in the town proper about 5:30 p.m. when gunmen tailed their Honda Wave 125 motorcycle. Upon reaching a curved portion of the road, the gunmen opened fire on the couple, then escaped towards Liloy.
