A PORTER, locally known as kargador, was shot and killed by an unidentified gunman around 1 a.m. on Friday, May 10, 2024, at the Block 7 in Barangay Sawang Calero, Cebu City.

Julius Mahusay, a 40-year-old resident of the said place, was recognized as the victim.

Mahusay succumbed to a single gunshot wound to his head.

According to Police Captain Jade Basingao, the chief of Carbon Police Station, that based on the statements of some witnesses, they heard gunshots, and when they checked, they saw the victim lying, bathed in his own blood.

The victim already died when the barangay’s medical personnel arrived.

Staff Sergeant Leigh Vincent Gonzalve, case investigator of Sawang Calero Police Station, said they are looking into personal grudge as the possible motive of the incident.

Gonzalve stated that some residents claimed that the victim was a good man and they were shocked to learn that he was shot.

"Buotan man daw na sir, wala sad na ma involve sa drugs matod sa mga tawo didto mao na nga amo pa gyud na subayon nganong gipusil na siya," according to Gonzalve.

(People there said he was a good man and never involved in drugs, which is why we are looking into why he was shot).

The Carbon police are still conducting an investigation to identify the culprit. (AYB, TPT)
