LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines — Two barangay officials were gunned down in Guinobatan, Albay on Monday.

Luzviminda Dayandante, 50, chairwoman of Barangay Batbat, and barangay treasurer Albert Orlina, 45, were on a motorcyle when they were shot in Barangay Sinongtan at around 3:30 p.m.

Maj. Domingo Tapel Jr., Guinobatan police chief, said the victims died at the scene.

“We are having difficulty in our investigation because no witness has come forward to give a statement,” Tapel said.

Guinobatan Mayor Gemma Onghoco said the victims had just visited her office to check the status of projects to be put up in their barangay when the incident occurred.
