A tricycle driver was shot dead by an unidentified motorcycle-riding gunman in Clarin at 6 a.m. on Friday.
Police identified the victim as Antonio Jaganas, 58, a resident of Brgy. Bacani of said town.
Based on initial Clarin police investigation, Jaganas was waiting for passengers outside a market in said village when the assailant on board his motorcycle stopped beside the victim and immediately shot him.
Jaganas sustained a bullet wound through his left chest and an exit wound in the upper part of his right rib which caused his instantaneous death.
According to police, they are looking at a longstanding feud between the victim and another party as primary motive behind Jaganasâ€™ killing.
Police said that Jaganas six years ago figured in an accident in Tubigon which resulted in the death of a man who authorities did not identify.
Jaganas who stood firm in his assertion that the accident was not of his doing reportedly refused to extend financial aid to the victimâ€™s family.
However, investigators continue to gather information on other possible motives and leads on the gunman. (Allen Doydora)
