Ex-barangay kapitan shot dead in bed

BANI–A former barangay captain here was shot dead by unidentified suspects inside his residence in Barangay Colayo this town on April 9.

The fatality was identified as Conrado Huellas, 67.

she saw him bloodied.

At about the same time, the victim’s wife briefly saw a barrel of a long firearm from their slightly opened window.
