Man dead in Balamban, Cebu shooting incident

Friday, August 11, 2017

A 26-YEAR-OLD man was shot dead by an unidentified gunman in Barangay Buanoy, Balamban, Cebu, around 5:30 p.m. Thursday, August 10.

Police identified the victim as Felibert Carmelotes Villabas, a resident of Barangay Agtugop, Asturias, Cebu, who succumbed to a gunshot wound in the head.

Before the incident, Villabas claimed his salary from their main office inside the compound of West Cebu Industrial Park in Buanoy.

A witness told the police that Villabas was walking by the roadside when the gunman, in checkered shorts and blue shirt, drew a gun tucked in his waist.

The gunman aimed his gun at Villabas and shot the victim. He then boarded a motorcycle and left the area.

Investigators have yet to determine the motive in the attack. (KAL/SunStar Cebu)
