COTABATO CITY – Two were killed in separate gun attacks here in a span of only seven hours, all perpetrators at large.
Jonity Kubato, 45, was driving his car at past 5:00 p.m. Monday, December 26, in a stretch of Gonzalo Javier Street here when one of two men together on a motorcycle trailing behind shot him with a .45 caliber pistol as they got close.
Kubato, then on his way home from somewhere, died on the spot.
His attackers, wearing facemasks, immediately sped away after the attack.
A still unidentified man shot dead 60-year-old Joseph Yu in his house in Barangay Poblacion 3 at about 3:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 27.
Lt. Col. Carmelo Mungkas, the spokesperson of the Cotabato City Police Office, said Tuesday that investigators are still trying to identify the killers of Kubato and Yu with the help of the duo’s relatives and barangay officials. (JOHN UNSON)
