ILOILO City – A security guard shot two construction workers on Wednesday night in Barangay San Rafael, Mandurriao district.
Joy Absalon, assigned at Protect Telecom Company, fled after the shooting, according to Police Major Marlon Valencia of the Mandurriao police station.
The two construction workers, on the other hand, were taken to the Western Visayas Medical Center.
Mario Martinez and Ceasar Lomibang both had gunshot wounds on their chests.
From what the Mandurriao police so far gathered, an unruly Martinez was harassing Absalon for no apparent reason at around 9:15 p.m.
A .9mm pistol was used on Martinez and Valencia, based on three spent bullet shells recovered from the shooting site.
“We are now trying to negotiate with the suspect to surrender,” said Valencia./PN
