CAMP PACIANO RIZAL, Laguna – Three persons were killed and a municipal councilor was wounded in an ambush in Alaminos, Laguna, Tuesday.
Laguna Provincial Director Sr. Supt. Pascual Muniz, Jr said Lino Zuǹiga, a councilor in Alaminos, was hit in the leg and arm when gunmen on a motorcycle and another vehicle shot at his car on Del Pilar Street.
The driver, Sonny Briz, died on the spot, while Zuniga’s cousins James Briz and Nelson Briz died hours later in hospital.
Muǹoz said the four had just come from a cockfight in Alaminos when they were attacked.
Zuǹiga was seated in the front passenger seat.
“We are looking into the possibility of a misunderstanding in the derby although we are not ruling out other angles nor politics,” Munoz said.
