The report says that the victims, identified as Raul Francis Gomez Gueta, 28, resident of Magsaysay Extension, Poblacion District 2, here, sustained a gunshot wound on his head; Rakim Abayata Omanito, 23, boat crew, and a resident of San Andres, Quezon, was shot in his right ankle; and Lilian Asoque Suplito, 27, and resident of Brgy. Claveria, here, was wounded in her right leg.

The investigators said that the victims were on board a boat manned by boat Capt. Edwin Marindoque y Pangatihon. The owner of the boat was identified as Adan Omanito y Abayata, of Sitio Dapdap, Brgy. Osmena, here.

Meanwhile, the same report said that the boat was en route to Masbate City.

The suspects were wearing shawls (balabal) which they used to cover their face to hide their identity.
The victims were first brought to the Claveria District Hospital for medical treatment. However, they were later transferred by the attending doctor to BRTTH in Legazpi City for further medical treatment.

The investigators recovered from the passenger boat the following items: one piece of slug for 5.56 mm and one piece of slug for calibre 9mm.

The pieces of evidence were brought to the police station, while a follow-up investigation is still being conducted.


The identity of the suspects could not be ascertained at press time.
