ILOILO CITY Jan. 10 (PNA)- A man was killed in an ambush yesterday staged by still unidentified suspects at Sitio Maylunok Hilwan, Tapaz, Capiz.
The slain victim was 26-year-old victim Joan Asiong of Libacao, Aklan.
The Tapaz police said the victim was walking together with their mother and a sibling on their way back to Libacao when five armed suspects suddenly appeared from nowhere and gunned him down.
The suspects reportedly spared the Asiong matriarch and the other sibling from harm as they hastily fled after shooting Asiong dead.
The victim sustained wounds on his breast, ears, thigh and other parts of his body inflicted by pellets of 12-gauge shotgun that caused his instantaneous death.
The Tapaz police believed a sort of vendetta that was triggered by a long standing family feud between two families in Libacao town motivated the crime.
Police learned that a member of a certain Felix family in the municipality was also killed last year and family tagged Asiong as the prime suspect.(PNA)
