VILLASIS, Pangasinan – A hard hitting radio commentator was shot along the Villasis-Asingan road in Poblacion Zone 1 early morning Tuesday.
PCI Norman Florentino, chief of police here identified the victim as Virgilio Maganes, 59, single, and a resident of Brgy San Blas this municipality.
He was onboard his Euro motorized tricycle bearing plate nr 3008-ZG when a motorcycle-riding suspect shot him several times.
Maganes was brought to Dr. Chan Hospital in Carmen where he is now recuperating after sustaining bullet wounds that grazed the right side of his body.
Florenino said, a placard bearing the words “Huwag ako tularan adik ako” was found in the crime scene.
The police official however cleared Maganes of any involvement in drugs.
“Maaring gusto lang iligaw ang motibo ng krimen at bago pa ang pamamamaril ay nakapag-blotter na ang biktima ng mga banta sa kaniyang buhay,” said Florentino.
Florentino adds the issue has something to do with Maganes’ work as a broadcaster. (Liezle Basa Inigo)
