‘Robber’ shot dead
A suspected robber was shot dead by the brother of his victim in Carmen town, northern Cebu past 1 a.m. Sunday.
Victim Domingo Lozano, 32, of barangay Upper Natimao-an, Carmen sustained a gunshot wound in the chest which caused his instantaneous death.
Lozano was playing a card game in the house of his friend, Edicio Dimco, when suspect Eufronio Luardo, 78, attacked him.
Barangay tanods immediately responded and arrested the gunman.
SPO3 Renerio Masocol Jr. told Cebu Daily News the suspect is the brother of Ezekiel Luardo, a businessman, and Lozano’s alleged robbery victim.
Early this year, Lozano with three companions allegedly waylaid, robbed and stabbed Ezekiel while he was on his way home from work.
Masocol said that there is no record of Luardo filing a complaint against Lozano after the incident and they believe that the motive of last Sunday’s attack was revenge.
Eufronio will be facing a murder case because of Lozano’s death. /Correspondent Christine Emily L. Pantaleon
