CEBU – Police launched an investigation into the ambush of a member of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Carcar City in Cebu province.
Unidentified gunmen killed Von Rian Tecson while on his way home in his truck. His murder last week’s added to the growing cases of gun attacks in Cebu, mostly connected to illegal drugs.
Tecson was with his driver, Arnulfo Bauyaban, when another vehicle blocked their path in the village of Perrelos and motorcycle gunmen peppered the agent with bullets.
Bauyaban was also wounded in the shooting. Police investigators recovered at least 36 bullet casings from different guns and probably automatic rifles also.
Gunmen also killed Baby Earl Rallos, the PDEA deputy chief, in an attack in Cebu on July 27. The latest killing came after PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino ordered Tecson and dozens of agents transferred to other areas. The motive of Tecson’s killing is still unknown. His family did not give any statement to the press. (Cebu Examiner)
