CITY OF ILAGAN, Isabela — A 45-year-old jeepney driver was shot dead by one of two motorcycle-riding men on Monday night in front of a shopping mall in Alibagu village here.

Joseph Corpuz, 45, was parking his vehicle at the commuter staging area of Northstar Mall for the last trip of the day when he was repeatedly shot at close range in the head at about 7:30 p.m., said Supt. Manuel Bringas.
