CAMP FLORENDO, La Union, Philippines — An overseas Filipino worker (OFW) and a farmer were killed following a brawl in Nagbukel, Ilocos Sur on Saturday night.

Eduardo Cacpal, 52, a returning OFW from the US, and Arthur Baguang Jr., a farmer, died from stab and gunshot wounds, respectively.

Cacpal was declared dead on arrival at the Ilocos Sur District Hospital.

Baguang died at the scene of the incident.

Reports said Cacpal and Baguang were among a group of men who were having a drinking spree at a wake in Barangay Bandril.

A quarrel broke out among the group, which resulted in Baguang allegedly stabbing Cacpal in the abdomen.

Although wounded, Cacpal reportedly picked up a piece of wood and hit Baguang, who managed to flee.

As Baguang fled, one of the men reportedly pulled out a gun and shot him.

Probers have yet to identify the man who fired the shots that killed Baguang.
