A DRUG personality was shot to death by an unidentified man at Antonio Luna Interior, Barangay Mambulac in Silay City, Negros Occidental Thursday night.
Superintendent Willy Diel, chief of Silay City Police Station, identified the fatality as Jun “Bong Bong” Guillargan, 40. He was allegedly a drug user and pusher.
Investigation showed that Guillargan was standing near a sari-sari store when the assailant fired at him around 9:40 p.m. He did not reach the hospital alive.
Diel said the victim’s neighbors heard the gunfire, but nobody saw the gunman.
Recovered were a deformed slug and another slug of an unknown firearm.
The victim’s death is being linked to illegal drugs, Diel said.
Meanwhile, as investigation on the crime scene is still ongoing, the police noticed several people inside a vacant house around 10:40 p.m.
This led to the arrest of six persons, including two women, who were holding a “pot session” inside the house.
Arrested were Evelyn Caballero, 31, of Hacienda San Herman Hilado, Barangay Guimbalaon; Razel Panisales, 39, of Antilla Subdivision, Barangay 5; Florencio Pinsay, 30, of Sotio So-ol 1, Barangay 2; Michelle Alvarez, 33, of Bonifacio Extension, Barangay 4; and Edelin Junto, 33 and Jastin Esporas, 30, both residents of Barangay Mambulac.
Police seized a sachet of suspected shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride), drug paraphernalia, two cellular phones and P321 cash from the suspects. (GYM)
