LEGAZPI CITY-- An incumbent village chieftain went on a shooting spree, killing a farmer and wounding another farmer inside a cockpit on Saturday morning in Barangay Nabongsoran, Aroroy, Masbate.

Dead on the spot was Zaldy Villar Jr., 28, a resident of Barangay Bogtong, Mandaon, Masbate, while wounded and brought to the Masbate Provincial Hospital was Salvador Villar, 41, of the same village.

It is not known whether the two were related to each other.

The suspect, who immediately escaped, was Barangay Captain Leo Cabarles of Nabongsoran.

A report of Senior Supt. Jesus Martirez, Provincial Police Director of Masbate, said the incident happened at about 11:00 a.m. when Cabarles was talking with one Edgardo Amparo Jr., who is in charge of the cockpit.

A heated argument ensued between the two, the report said, causing Cabarles to draw his cal. 9mm pistol and shot Amparo, who immediately run for safety.

The bullet found its mark on the younger Villar's head, killing him instantly.

Another stray bullet hit the elder Villar, who was rushed to the hospital for treatment.

Police are now hunting Cabarles who hurriedly escaped after the shooting.

Martirez said Cabarles was arguing with Amparo about the low percentage of share he would get from the cockfight proceeds, resulting in heated arguments and the shooting. (PNA)
