MOTORCYCLE-RIDING armed men on Saturday shot dead a 37-year-old member of the Sangguniang Bayan of San Fernando, Cebu in an attack in Ramon Magsaysay, Zamboanga del Sur.

The gunmen immediately fled after killing Alfonso Donaire IV on the highway in Purok 2, Bgy. Poblacion, Ramon Magsaysay municipality at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, a report to Police Regional Office 9 director Chief Supt. Emmanuel Luis Licup said.

The victim was on his way to his father’s house when tailed by the suspects.

The driver of the motorbike, who was wearing a face mask, and his back-rider, who was wearing a jacket and long pants, fired at the victim without any provocation using a cal. .45 and a 9mm pistol.

Donaire suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died on the spot.

Witnesses said the gunmen escaped towards the neighboring Molave municipality.

Licup said the motive and identities of the suspects are being investigated.
