Brawner also said that Ablando’s companion identified as Zandra Arnica Uzman, 43, was wounded in the incident that took place Thursday morning.

According to Brawner, the two were alighting from a vehicle when stray bullets hit them. The victims were rushed to the Amai Pakpak Hospital, where Ablando also consequently died.
