0 160

The brother of a barangay councilor in Navotas City was gunned down by motorcycle-riding suspects last Monday night.

Norman de Guia, 51, brother of Barangay San Jose councilor Boyet de Guia, died due to multiple gunshot wounds when two still unidentified suspects fired at him while he was inside a barangay outpost on Gulayan Street, Barangay San Jose.

The victim’s friend Romeo Tudilla, 56, was hit by stray bullets and was taken to a nearby hospital.

Authorities said the gunmen’s target was believed to be De Guia, whose brother was reportedly eyeing the top barangay post in the coming May election.

The victim was charged with murder 30 years ago but police believed his death has nothing do to with his case.
