Samar village official shot dead

By Eli C. Dalumpines

Tacloban City (13 April) -- An official of an interior village of Sta. Margarita town was shot dead by two still unidentified gunmen Tuesday afternoon, police reports said.

Sta. Margarita police reported that Artemio C. Onate, 46 years old and a Barangay Kagawad of Brgy. Camperito was on his way home after taking an afternoon bath at Pambuhan River around 6 p.m. Tuesday when he was shot.

Onate sustained gunshot wounds in his head and in his left leg which resulted to his instantaneous death.

The police recovered from the crime scene 5 empty shells of cal. 45 pistol and an empty shell of 12 gauge shotgun.

No witnesses have surfaced to shed light on the case as of press time though.

But Samar Police Director Supt. Asdali Idja Abah directed the Sta. Margarita Police to conduct a thorough investigation to identify the suspects and to determine the motive behind the killing.

Lately, there has been a series of killings allegedly perpetrated by the communist New People’s Army (NPA) against local government officials who expressed support to the government’s anti-insurgency drive but the military has yet to confirm whether the Onate killing is insurgency-related or not.
