A man and his sister were shot and hacked to death by three men at Sitio Caragasan, Maasin Friday afternoon.

The suspects were arrested in less than five hours of hot pursuit operation carried out by men of the Sinunuc police station led by Chief Insp. Hingming Chang Ladjaali.

A police report disclosed that Alexander Clemente y Cantero, 36, married and his sister Pilarica Clemente y Cantero, 33, were shot and hacked several times around 1:30 p.m.  by Parino Adjirul y Milu, 31, and his brothers Appal Adjirul, 30, and Ambrusu Adjirul y Milu, 29, both natives of Jolo, Sulu.

Ladjaali said that Parino was arrested right after the incident. Recovered from his possession was a bolo that was used in the attack.

The two brothers managed to leave the place before the police arrived.

Ladjaali and his men continued their hot pursuit operation and finally caught the two other suspects at the local wharf around 6 p.m. while they were about to escape to Jolo aboard a vessel. Recovered from the possession of Appal was a 9mm Berretta pistol with marking Philippine National Police loaded with ammunition, a 357 revolver and two sachets of shabu while from the possession of Ambrusu, the  police confiscated a bolo with bloodstains and two sachets of shabu.

The two were brought and detained with their brother Appal at the Sinunuc Police Station

A police report disclosed that Appal and Ambrusu recently arrived in Caragasan and stayed with their brother Parino as they were in hiding from the law after committing another murder in Jolo.

It was learned that Appal and Ambrusu renovated Parino’s house, and allegedly encroached the lot of the Clemente family which Alexander and Pilarica protested.

The protest triggered an altercation that led to the bloody confrontation.

Police said the three brothers entered the house of Alexander and Pilarcia and shot them several times.

When they slumped on the ground, the suspects hacked their bodies before they left the place. – Dan Toribio
