AROROY, Masbate—Two security guards of the Filminera Resources Corporation Masbate Gold Project (MGP) were gunned down at predawn today (February 11).

A sketchy report provided by the police to BICOLSTANDARD.COM says that the shooting incident took place at 4:30 a.m at the gold mining firm’s emulsion plant located at Brgy. Panique this town.

Police named the victims as Kenneth Anthony Danao Ferreras, 26 years old, married, security guard, a resident of Sitio Tamba, Brgy. Poblacion, and Andres Millares Villafuerte, 22 years old, security guard, a resident of Brgy. San Isidro, both of this town.

The perpetrator/s fled immediately fled to an unknown direction after the incident.

The victims, meanwhile, died instantaneously after they suffered fatal gunshot wounds.

They were later brought to the Masbate Provincial Hospital for autopsy.

The police are still conducting a probe to determine the identity, number and motive of the assailant/s.

Meanwhile, MGP's Communications Director Eugene Gregorio, released to BICOLSTANDARD.COM a statement of the mining firm's security contractor. The communication reads:
