Elected village councilor shot dead inside Pasay barangay hall


MANILA, Philippines — A newly elected 58-year-old village councilor was shot dead inside a barangay hall in Pasay City on Monday, according to police.

In a report Tuesday, the Pasay City Police Station (CPS)  identified the victim as “Lina.” He was attacked by two suspects onboard a motorcycle in front of Barangay 37 hall on San Juan Street at 5:35 p.m.


Police said the CCTV footage showed that the pillion rider alighted the motorcycle and shot the victim twice inside the barangay hall.


The newly elected leader, who previously served as village treasurer, was rushed to the Adventist Medical Center but was pronounced dead at about 6:16 p.m., Pasay CPS said.

Meanwhile, the city’s Station Drug Enforcement Unit operatives patrolling the area apprehended the accomplice of the gunman after their motorcycle bumped a commuter waiting for a ride.

The accomplice was identified as 27-year-old “Vladimer,” while the other suspect who shot the victim eluded arrest.

Pasay CPS said its personnel already launched a manhunt operation to locate the whereabouts of the gunman.
