ORMOC CITY– A member of the Citizen Armed Force Geographical Unit (Cafgu) was shot dead by a village official in Calbayog City on Saturday (Jan. 21).

Reports reaching the regional Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters based in Palo, Leyte, disclosed that the victim, Crisanto Domayan, 57, was shot dead by Noli Sameniano in P-5 Barangay Himalandrog, a remote village in Calbayog City at about 6:40 am.

Report said that the victim armed with bolo locally known as “sundang,” tucked in his waist, and with a homemade shotgun locally known as “Doble Zero” had gone berserk and roamed the village, challenging anyone for a fight.

He then proceeded to the house of Sameniano, who at that time, was attending to the wake of his wife.

Sameniano got an unknown firearm and shot the victim several times which caused his immediate death.

Police operatives are now conducting a manhunt operation against Sameniano who fled after the incident. (ROBERT DEJON)
