Jeffrey Comeros, 40, barangay councilor of San Jose in Catmon, was fixing a vehicle with a companion when an unidentified suspect wearing a bonnet shot him several times.
“Based sa mga estorya, duna na siyay mga customer sa una nga dawaton niya unya dili siya katuman sa ilang sabot. So we’re looking at a personal grudge (He allegedly had customers before who got angry at him for not keeping their deals),” Senior Insp. Alexander Nunez, chief of the Catmon police, told Sun.Star Cebu.

“We’re also looking into a drug-related angle because he might have returned to drugs again,” Nunez said in Cebuano.
Comeros was an auto mechanic. He owned a shop beside the national highway of San Jose where he was shot to death at 6:10 p.m. last Friday.
He was rushed to the Juan Dosado Memorial Hospital but he didn’t make it there alive.
The Catmon police are still investigating the incident.
