A barangay tanod was stabbed and shot to death at Barangay Binayan, Labangan Municipality, Zamboanga del Sur last Friday.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office-9 Information Officer, identified the victim as Pedilino Andilab y Canonyo, 46 years old, married and a resident of Barangay Binayan.

Galvez said that the victim was walking towards the Pagadian City Hall to render duty when he was waylaid and stabbed several times with a hunting knife by an unknown suspect.

Not contented, the suspects then shot the victim at close range with the use of an undetermined caliber of firearm, causing the victim’s death.

Police attributed the incident to personal grudge.  (Remus Ong)
