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 (EditorLeti Z. Boniol)
