Police said Tamang and the suspect, Efren Tariago, had a heated argument over a land dispute between their families, which triggered the latter to pull his gun and shoot the victim thrice in the head and body.

Tamang was rushed to a hospital but died due to the gunshot wounds to the left side of his head and to his chest, investigators said.
