A barangay kagawad was shot to death while his companion was seriously wounded by two gunmen riding tandem on a motorcycle in Rizal, Zamboanga del Norte last week.

Dead on the spot was Pablo Aleta, a kagawad of Barangay Sinaad, Rizal. Fighting for his life in the hospital was Jay Borongan, 33, married.

Aleta succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds on the different parts of the body while Borongan was wounded on both legs.

A police report disclosed that Aleta and Borongan were aboard a motorcycle on their way to another barangay when they were tailed by the gunmen.

While negotiating a slope road the gunmen sidled up and the backrider opened fire on them. They immediately escaped towards Dapitan City.

Borongan was rushed to hospital by helpful residents while Aleta died on the spot.

Police were looking on personal dispute as the motive behind the gun attack. — Noning R. Antonio
