Two brothers, whom police tagged as high value drug personalities but who surrendered last year, were shot dead by motorcycle-riding attackers at early Sunday dawn in Barangay Pajac, Lapu-Lapu City.
Rasul Pavila, 42, and Jalil Pavila, 26, of Sitio Kalubihan, died after they were shot several times in the body.
SPO1 Luisito Ernie of the Lapu-Lapu City Homicide Office said that the victims were cruising along in their motorcycle in Barangay Pajac at past 1 a.m. on Sunday when two men on a motorcycle cruised side by side with them.
The backrider of the other motorcycle then pulled out a gun and shot both brothers dead.
Ernie said that Pavila brothers were tagged as level 2 drug pushers or those who could dispose at least 100 grams of shabu in a week.
However, both victims surrendered last year to Senior Supt. Rommel Cabagnot, Lapu-Lapu City Police Chief and turned over two .45 pistols.
