A COUNCILOR in Aloguinsan town, western Cebu was shot and wounded inside his house last Wednesday night.

Rosario barangay councilor Leonardo Campanilla, 54, survived the attack.

Police said Campanilla and his friend Celerina Dela Cerna were talking in his house when an armed man barged in and shot the barangay official in the stomach.

The assailant fled on a motorcycle.
