A personal grudge and affiliation with progressive groups are the angles being looked into by the police in the killing of activist leader Zara Alvarez, who was gunned down in Barangay Mandalagan, Bacolod City Monday night.

P/Maj. Richard Fajarito, Station 3 chief, said yesterday that a lone gunman and a driver of a motorcycle are being eyed as suspects in the death of Alvarez, of Cadiz City in Negros Occidental.

Alvarez, 39, had bought barbeque and was on her way home with her two board mates, one of whom was a minor, when the suspects tailed them and shot Alvarez in a dimly-lit area of Sta. Maria Street in Eroreco Subdivision, Fajarito said. moremoremore
