Barangay captain killed in Bacnotan, La Union

By Miriam P. Aquino

San Fernando City, La Union (7 May) -- Barangay Captain Felix Henry Dacumos of Barangay Bacsil, Bacnotan, this province was shot by two unidentified motor-riding gunmen on May 5, (Wednesday), between 1:00 to 1:30 p.m. as he was taking his siesta in his residence.

Reports said that, in the afternoon of May 5, while Dacumos was resting in a papag outside their house, two motor-riding men approached him and asked to sign a certain document placed in a folder. When these alleged gunmen handed Dacumos the folder for his signature, he opened it and was startled to see that the document contained nothing.

When his alleged visitors pull out a gun and shot him in his left leg, the Barangay Captain ran away to the fields trying to escape but a second shot caught him in the head when he was about 50 meters away from his killers.

He was rushed to the Bacnotan District Hospital but was declared dead on arrival.

No further report on whether this is an election-related killing. Case is still under investigation by the PNP in the locality. (PIA-RO/LU/Bombo La Union) [top]
