Another man allegedly involved drug activities was shot to death by an unidentified gunman in Tagbilaran City early this morning, July 21, 2016.
The victim, 37-year-old Zoilo Garcia III, a resident of B. Inting cor. Tamblot, sustained multiple gunshot wounds in various parts of his body causing his instantaneous death.
Garcia was takenÂ to the hospital by a neighbor but was declared dead on arrival.
According to Supt. George Vale, Tagbilaran City police chief, Garcia had a heated argument with an unidentified person before he was gunned down at around 12:30am but thereÂ have been no witnesses who were able to identify the suspect.
Vale said that the police are currently considering several angles in Garciaâ€™s killing.
Although the victim is a known drug personality in the city, authorities are not solely eyeing the drug angle in Garciaâ€™s death.
In their investigation, the authorities are looking into Garciaâ€™s movements the previous night including people who might have seen him before he was killed.
The slaying of Garcia was the fourth Bohol drug personality killing in less than a week.
Since July 14, 2016, three other drug personalities were gunned down by unidentified suspects in the towns of Guindulman, Valencia, and Sagbayan. (with reports from Allen Doydora)
