Two persons were killed in separate shooting incidents in Tugbungan and Mariki last Wednesday night.

Killed were Rodolfo Cariaga, 43, married, a welder of Barigon, Tugbungan and Said Masaysay, a faith healer of Mariki.

Cariaga and his family were in their house around 11 p.m. when an unidentified man arrived and called him outside the gate of the house.

Cariaga’s wife told the police that she heard her husband talking to the man outside. Moments later she heard gunfire and rushed outside to check. She saw Cariaga lying on the ground with bullet wounds in the body.

The gunman disappeared undercover of darkness, relatives of the victim said.

Masaysay sustained a bullet wound in the body and died near the house of a barangay councilwoman in Mariki at dawn yesterday.

A sketchy report showed that the incident took place around 2 a.m. while Masaysay was walking near the house of the barangay official where a gunman appeared and shot him at close range.

No one could tell the police on the identity of the killer. — Dan Toribio Jr.
