CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Philippines — A lawyer was gunned down by motorcycle-riding assailants in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon on Thursday.

Winston Intong, 53, a resident of Barangay 10, was shot several times while buying vegetables at a mini-market near his home, Lt. Col. Jerry Tambis, Malaybalay police chief, said.

Tambis said probers are eyeing a grudge as the motive for the killing.

Capt. Jiselle Ester Lou Longakit, Bukidnon police spokesperson, said Intong was included in President Duterte’s drug watchlist.

Intong and three others were arrested in a sting at his law office in Valencia City in 2011. The lawyer was acquitted of the drug charges.
