Nephew kills uncle on land

A 32-year-old man was shot to death in yet another case of brazen shooting in broad daylight at Barangay Talay Dumaguete City, Tuesday, February 2018.

DUMAGUETE CITY – Meanwhile, a festering land dispute ended violently with the nephew shooting his uncle to death in Bagawines, Vallehermoso, Tuesday.

The incident claimed the life of 66-year-old Jesus Dayoha after he was repeatedly shot by his nephew Danilo Dayoha. Both the victim and suspect are widowers and figured in a heated argument over the right to cultivate a 2.5 hectare lot for sugarcane.

Suspect Danilo Dayoha resented his uncle’s continued use of the land despite the latter’s separation from the Bagawines Ulay Cabulihan Farm Workers Association while the former is an active member.

It was alleged that the victim attacked and wounded the suspect with the bolo prompting the younger Dayoha to shoot his uncle using his 9 mm pistol before escaping.

Responding policemen recovered 4 pieces of spent shells and 4 live ammunition of a 9mm pistol. The suspect later surrendered to the authorities.


Pastor shot to death; live-in partner hurt

Yet another shooting claims the life of a Baptist pastor in Buenavista Guihulngan City early Tuesday evening which incident also resulted to the wounding of his common-law wife by an unidentified suspect.

Investigation disclosed that the victim Carlito Bulloron, 53, and his partner Grace Saknana, 28, were walking on their way home at around 6:30PM when ambushed by a lone suspect who shot the victims multiple times.

Bulloron, who was hit in different parts of his body died instantly and while Saknana was wounded and confined at the district hospital.

It was difficult to establish the identity of the suspect because the area was pitch dark due to the absence of electricity.

The victim’s son said that the attacker without any apparent reasons shot the defenseless couple before escaping. Responding policemen recovered 5 pieces of spent shells and one deformed slug from a .45 caliber pistol.

Investigation continues by the police in this killing-ridden town starting way back when six policemen were killed in an ambush apparently by rebels.
