A man was killed while his 12-year old son was wounded after they were allegedly shot by a former barangay kagawad in Purok Bakhaw B, Barangay Kawit, Pagadian City last Saturday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report identified the victims of the gun attack as Jessie Rey Tero Ontolan, 39, married, jobless and his son Jessrel Calgas Ontolan, 12, a student.

The two victims were allegedly shot by Bernardo Dionio Arroyo, 48, a former Barangay Kagawad of Barangay Bibilik, Dumalinao Municipality, Zamboanga del Sur.

Investigation showed that Arroyo and his companion, identified as 38-year-old garbage truck driver Sofio Retubado Namucatcat, were engaged in a drinking session in front of a store when Ontolan and his son passed by.

Namucatcat offered a glass of beer to Jessie, which the latter took.

Arroyo suddenly stood up and shot Jessie at close range, a fatal shot that caused his death.

Jessie’s son, Jessrel, was also hit in the right hand.

The suspects then escaped aboard a motorcycle but were arrested during hot pursuit operations conducted by police.  (Dan Toribio)
