Drug surrenderer killed in NegOr


Unidentified motorcycle-riding suspects shot dead a drug surrenderer in Vallehermoso, the northernmost town of Negros Oriental, yesterday.

A police report from the Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office (NORPPO) identified the victim as Teresito Pata Ondang, 47, married and a resident of Sitio Lico, Barangay Bulado in the neighboring city of Guihulngan.

Initial police investigation disclosed that Ondang was driving his motorcycle around 7:40 p.m. yesterday when four suspects wearing bonnets and riding on two motorcycles rode up to him at a dimly-lit area along Aguinaldo Street in Poblacion Vallehermoso and shot him several times.

The suspects fled toward Guihulngan City and managed to evade a police checkpoint at Barangay Puan, Vallehermoso, taking a different route instead, the police said.

Ondang was rushed to a hospital in nearby San Carlos City, Negros Occidental but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Investigators recovered from the crime scene five fired cartridges and a slug of a .45 caliber pistol.

The victim’s cellular phone was recovered and the police are hoping to find some vital information to help solve the crime.*PNA
