ROXAS CITY: A barangay councilor was killed inside a cockpit arena in Barangay San Fernando, Pilar, Capiz. Victim Arnold Villegas, a barangay kagawad of Barangay Rosario, died while on the way to the Bailan District Hospital in Pilar. The victim sustained a lone gunshot wound on his head inflicted by a still an undetermined caliber firearm. Pilar police investigators said the barangay kagawad was viewing the cockfight derby on Thursday in the locality when gunned down by a bonnet-wearing suspect, who hastily escaped after the shooting incident. Police believed that Villegas’s gun-slay has something to do with illegal drugs, saying that the victim was reportedly involved with the illicit business in the barangay.
