Cruz said the 49-year-old Kua and his daughter were inside their home in Greenfield Makiling Highland in Maunong village when the incident occurred around 8 p.m.
He said the four suspects barged into the residence and one of them shot Kua, hitting him in the face and different parts of his body.
Another suspect shot Kua’s daughter and grabbed her bag before they escaped, Cruz added.
He said authorities have formed Task Force Nixon to track down the perpetrators.
A P100,000 reward is being offered for information that would lead to the arrest of the suspects.(VR/Sunnex)
