A barangay councilwoman was shot dead by two unknown assailants at the Sangi Public Market in Barangay Madridejos, Alegria town in southern Cebu.
Fifty-two-year-old Juanita Lobrino, who served as councilwoman of Barangay Guadalupe of the same town, was buying fish when an unidentified man wearing a helmet approached and shot her four times on the head and the body before speeding off with his companion on a motorcycle, according to PO1 Reymond Obiasada, the desk officer of the Alegria police.
Witnesses accounts said the incident took place at around 6:55 p.m. today and a concerned citizen called the police station immediately after the incident, added Obiasada, quoting information from PO2 Jupiter Elarcosa, the case investigator.
