Duty investigator PO2 Ronald Baguio, of Talomo police, said that according to eyewitnesses, the victim was standing at the tricycle terminal when a man wearing a black jacket shot him twice in the head.

Parami died on the spot while the man fled onboard a motorcycle parked a few meters away from the crime scene.

Baguio said the second victim is identified as Melwin Allado, 25, a habal-habal (motorcycle-for-hire) driver and resident of Puan.

Allado was seated at a parked motorcycle with a sidecar at Crossing Puan when he was shot in the back, with the bullet exiting his chest. The gunman was onboard a Honda Super Big Bike with a companion who served as look out.

The victim was brought to the Adventist Hospital and later transferred to the San Pedro Hospital.

Chief Inspector Joselito Loriza, chief of the Talomo Police Station, ordered his men to conduct a thorough investigation on both incidents. (AD)
