CEBU CITY — A driver of a campaign vehicle is in critical condition after he was shot and wounded by a still unidentified assailant on board a private car in Barangay Liloan, Santander town, south Cebu at past 4 p.m. on Friday, May 6.

Rad Andrade, 33, sustained multiple gunshot wounds in the body and was rushed to a hospital in Cebu City.
