Son of brgy captain shot

The son of a barangay captain was injured when his neighbor, the body guard of a sugar mill officias, allegedly shot him following an altercation over a parking space in Brgy. 25, Bacolod City at about 6:40 a.m. yesterday.

Injured was Mario Ferdeleus Panes, 54, of Purok Galaluma, Brgy. 25, Bacolod, Station 1 commander, Chief Insp. Adonis Rosales said.

Panes, son of Brgy. 25 captain Federico Panes, was rushed with a gunshot wound on the chest to the Riverside Medical Center, where he is now confined.

The suspect, identified as Manny Balboa, a personal body guard of an official of Victorias milling Co., of Brgy. Napolis, Bago City and a temporary resident of Purok Galaluma, evaded arrest.

Recovered from the crime scene were deformed slugs of an unknown firearm, a police record showed.

Investigation showed that the two argued on Monday night when the younger Panes was asking Balboa to move his motorcycle because it was blocking the road but the suspect refused.

Yesterday, Balboa was on his way to work when Panes allegedly blocked his way, which again resulted in another verbal tussle that eventually led to the shooting, Rosales said.

Rosales also said they are coordinating with the family of Balboa and asking them to let him surrender to the police and face the consequences of what he did.

He added that they are investigating a report that the gun used by Balboa in the shooting is owned by VMC.*APN
