Jacinto Malinao identified the victim as Rodante Encallado, a resident of Barangay Maquina and a last term municipal councilor of Balete town. Investigation showed that Encallado had just stepped out of his Isuzu Alterra (NQU-538) to buy motorcycle tires at Sonic Lane Cycle Part in Barangay Maraouy when two gunmen approached from behind and shot him in the head at about 10:10 a.m. Encallado died on the spot from a single gunshot wound from a caliber ,45 pistol while the suspects fled towards Malvar town. Probers are eyeing on personal, business and politics as the motive behind the killing.
