A businessman was shot to death by one of two gunmen who later took his wallet containing undetermined amount pf money at Sitio Bincul, Mangusu last Saturday morning.

Police identified the fatality as Rico Elardo y Caluya, 32, married, of Sitio Campo, Barangay Sibulao.

A police report disclosed that Elardo was on his way to Vitali aboard a motorcycle around 6 a.m. when two men aboard another motorcycle chased him and the backrider opened fire at the border of Mangusu and Vitali. Elardo sustained bullet wounds in the body and died on the spot. His body was brought to the  Vitali Lying-in clinic for post mortem examination.

Investigators were looking at robbery as the possible motive of the killing as the victim’s wallet containing money was missing during ocular investigation. — Dan Toribio Jr.
