UMINGAN – A barangay chairman here was shot by an unidentified gunman who was riding on a motorcycle at one pm of May 18.
Police identified the victim as Maximo Ringor Peralta, 60, married, and the incumbent barangay chairman of San Juan of this town.
The police said Peralta was driving the Falcon Body Mitsubishi L-300 service vehicle of their barangay with plate number ZAE-641 with a companion, when they had entered the barangay road known as “Parang” which leads to their barangay, they were blocked by a tandem riding on a red Honda XRM 125 motorcycle without a plate number. Peralta was with Primito L. Javillonar, 56, married also from Barangay San Juan.
Police report said the back rider of the motorcycle got off the saddle and hurriedly got near the passenger window of the vehicle that the victim is driving, drew a short firearm, and shot the victim.
Peralta was hit on his right lower ear. The gunman rushed back to the motorcycle and with his driver sped off towards the town proper area along the national highway.
Javillonar immediately took over the vehicle and rushed him to the Umingan Community Hopital. After immediate treatment at the town’s community hospital, the victim was immediately transferred to Marcelo Chan Hospital in Rosales town for further medical treatment.
However, the victim died along the way and was pronounced dead on arrival by the emergency room physician of Marcelo Chan Hospital.
The police recovered two empty shells of caliber .45 from the scene and are now being subjected to ballistic examination for cross matching and tracing.
Javillonar described the gunman as 5’5” to 5’6” in height, 45 to 50 year old, masculine built, and was wearing a helmet and white jacket; while the driver of the motorcycle is 5’5” to 5’6” in height, 35 to 40 years old, slim, had a rounded face, and was wearing a ball cap, and blue polo shirt.
