Senior Insp. Eric Veluz, Dolores police chief, said the real target of the shooting was the victim’s father, Malasmas de la Luna, 44, a farmer in Barangay (village) San Mateo.

“That was admitted to us by the father himself. Apparently, a grudge was the motive. But he has yet to disclose the details,” Veluz said in a phone interview Sunday.
