A 34-year-old woman was shot to death by a gunman in Recodo last Thursday afternoon.

The fatality was identified as Mary Jane Peras y Magno, married, of Maasin. She was shot at Purok 3, Recodo around 1 p.m.

Peras sustained multiple bullet wounds in the body and died on the spot. Police said Peras was shot by Ahmad Jahang, a known gun-for-hire in the west coast.

Initial investigation showed that Peras had figured in a dispute with PO3 Sahari Jawadi two months ago because of money she owed to the former’s wife.

Police said that Peras and Jawadi’s wife had a confrontation at the barangay council where both of them failed to settle the dispute.

Based on police record, Jawadi threatened Peras if she could not pay her debt.

Men of the Ayala Police Station led by Sr. Insp. Edilberto Alvarez were still working on the case and follow-up operations to arrest all those involved in the killing are ongoing. — Dan Toribio Jr.
