MASBATE CITY-- A composite team composed of the 9th Infantry Division of the Philippine Army, Masbate City Police, Masbate Provincial Police, and the Masbate PPSC is conducting a hot pursuit operation against a group of armed men who ambushed three men aboard a black Toyota Hilux noontime today (April 18).

The unidentified three men, whose bodies were riddled with bullets, all died instantaneously. 

The ambushed vehicle is owned by Sammy Suplito, Police Provincial Senior Supt. Jesus C. Martirez told BICOLSTANDARD.COM 

Ambush

Meanwhile, Masbate Police City Director Cerilo Trilles, also revealed to  BICOLSTANDARD.COM that the shooting incident happened along the national road in Purok 2, Brgy. Usab, Masbate City at around 12:10 pm.

Initial investigation reveals that men aboard  a white Hi Ace van sprayed bullets at the black Toyota Hilux with plate number NR Y17159.

Armed with high-powered firearms, the assailants fired at the victims at close range.

Recovered from the scene were empty shells from  9MM pistol, M16 rifle, M14 rifle, and Caliber .45 pistol.


Victim beheaded

Cerilo admitted to BICOL STANDARD that he has received reports that one of the victims was beheaded.

He refused to give any confirmation on the matter because the members of the Scene of the Crime Operatives are still processing the crime scene.  

He, however, said that his team will check if the reported decapitation was due to use of high-powered weapons or if it was purposely done using a bladed weapon.

Meanwhile, PD Martirez, who earlier created Special Investigation Task Group “Amaro”, is already conducting a deeper probe to determine if this incident is related to the Amaro murders in Aroroy.

The owner of the ambushed vehicle Suplito is said to be the brother-in-law of "Ka Isong" Amaro.

Amaro was the businessman who was murdered along with his son and driver on April 5 by men armed with caliber .45 pistols and M16 rifles.
