BATANGAS CITY — A businessman was killed while one of his staff was hit by a stray bullet when two unidentified gunmen shot him inside his own karaoke bar in Barangay Cuta here early yesterday morning.

Superintendent Eduardo Sanque, Batangas City police chief, identified the victim as Edgar Dy, 45, the owner of Korakia KTV bar, Dayton Hardware and Korakia Dreaming Inn, all located in this city.

Wounded was Dy’s band singer Ellen Grace Cortez, 18, a member of the Dynamic Female Band. She sustained a wound on her right knee and is now being treated at St. Patrick Hospital here.
