Lawyer dies in Rizal ambush
SAN PEDRO CITY — A lawyer died in an ambush in Rodriguez town in Rizal province on Friday.
An initial police report shows that Edilberto Golla Jr., 45, a native of Sultan Kudarat, was onboard his pick-up truck and was supposed to go to a meeting when armed men onboard a black motorcycle shot and killed him near his residence at Eastwood Greenview in Barangay San Isidro, around 8:45 a.m.
The gunmen escaped and left 56 spent shells from 5.56 and .45 caliber guns.
Rodriguez police chief Lt. Col. Melchor Agusin, in a phone interview, said they were still looking into the victim’s background, which was private law practice.
He said Golla was not connected with any government office. Maricar Cinco (Editor: Leti Z. Boniol)
