BACOLOD CITY, Negros Occidental, Philippines – A woman was shot dead in a residential area here as night started to fall over this city.
Mandalagan village councilman Hernani Castor, quoting neighbors of the woman, identified the fatality as Sarah Reboton, estimated to be around 24, a resident of the northern city of Cadiz.
Reboton reportedly rents a room in Santa Maria, the street on which she was shot and found sprawled by residents.
Castor said they first heard what sounded like gunshots around 6:40pm and found the body of Reboton in the middle of the street when they arrived.
Some neighbors told DNX they heard two sets of three shots each ring out before it was known that someone was shot.
