A barangay chairwoman who’s running for congresswoman in Quezon City’s 2nd district was shot dead by unidentified gunmen Wednesday.

According to the initial report, Barangay Bagong Silangan chairperson Beng Beltran was aboard her vehicle when the four assailants, who were on board two motorcycles, opened fire past 11:30 a.m.

Beltran was declared dead on arrival at the hospital. Her driver was also killed in the ambush.

Quezon City Police District Director Chief Supt. Joselito Esquivel said politics may be a motive behind Beltran’s killing because of her congressional bid.

The QCPD has created “Task Force Beltran” to probe the incident.
