Aquino ran toward his parked car but was hit in the back. He was taken to the Villaflor Hospital here.

Early this year, Aquino, Governor Amado Espino Jr. and Pangasinan Representative Jesus Celeste were charged with murder in connection with the killing of Infanta Mayor Ruperto Martinez in December 2012.
