LA TRINIDAD, Benguet -  Policemen finally cornered the 29-year old killer of a barangay tanod in Dolores town in Abra. Suspect Willie Gandelara Bautista shot the village peacekeeper the other day during a drinking spree.

Abra officer-in-charge Superintendent Clint Bayacsan said Bautista, single and a resident of Barangay Mudiit was drinking with tanod Jacinto Eric Ferdinand Atmosfera Velasco, 35, married, when a misunderstanding occurred.

Velasco hacked the suspect but the latter retaliated by shooting the tanod before fleeing.

The tanod never reached the hospital alive while Bautista was arrested by policemen from the Dolores and Tayum municipal police stations while he was being treated for hack wounds at the Abra provincial hospital.

Under close watch from policemen,  Bautista is now facing murder raps.
