Pampanga barangay captain shot dead
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO—A barangay captain was shot dead by a lone gunman in this city on Tuesday night .
Barangay Sto. Rosario captain Jesus Liang was walking across the newly renovated public market when the male gunman approached and shot him in the head at around 8:30 p.m. before fleeing on foot toward V. Tiomico St., Lieutenant Colonel Preston Bagangan, city police chief, said in a phone interview on Wednesday.
Liang, 63, was on his third and last term.
Bagangan said a team has been dispatched to gather footage from security cameras in the area while an investigation is underway.
Liang was the second barangay captain killed in the city after Alasas village chief Alvin Mendoza was ambushed last April while campaigning for a seat in the local council.
