A WOMAN was shot to death inside a public utility jeepney by two unidentified assailants on board on motorcycle at Lizares Street, Barangay 40, Bacolod City Monday morning.
Police identified the fatality as Virgie Prisa, of Purok Bayanihan, Barangay Banago.
Senior Inspector Charles Gever, chief of Police Station 6, said around 5 a.m., Virgie and her husband Panfio Prisa, took a jeepney plying the Banago-Libertad route.
When Panfio alighted at Lizares Street, two unidentified men fired at his wife several times and fled.
He said Vergie, was about to buy vegetables at Libertad Market while her husband went to work as a jeepney driver.
The victim suffered wounds in her right shoulder and left waist and was rushed to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital where she was declared dead.
Panfio told the police that the driver of the motorcycle was wearing a helmet while the gunman was wearing a bonnet and a mask.
Last May 11, the couple was also on board a jeepney plying Banago-Libertad when two unidentified men on board a motorcycle also fired at them, using a .45 caliber at Corner South Capitol Road, San Juan Street, Barangay 8.
Gever said he believes that the perpetrators are the same persons and the victim’s daily routine has been monitored by the suspects.
Police Station 6 is looking into love-triangle as the possible motive for the killing.
Gever said the couple was recently charged by Panfio’s first wife for bigamy and the case was dismissed by the court.
