A woman allegedly shot her live-in partner late Sunday evening during an argument at Sitio Umabay in Barangay Tan-awan, Kabankalan City.
Police identified the victim as 57-year-old Rogelio Medez, a resident of the said barangay.
Based on the victim’s statement, he and the suspect, identified as 63-year-old Marita Pasilan, argued over financial issues.
Pasilan then allegedly pulled out a .38 caliber revolver and shot Medez in the stomach.
The suspect fled the house, while neighbors rushed Medez to a hospital in Bacolod City.
