One individual died, while two were wounded, following an incident last Wednesday along Rizal Street at Sitio Lugway in Hinigaran’s Barangay Gargato. Authorities identified the fatality as Reygan Evangelio Cervantes of the town’s Barangay Tagda; while Rene Lipales Alipala and Rency Casabuena Alipala, both residents of the said neighborhood, were brought to the Hinigaran Medical Center for treatment.
According to police, Cervantes shot Rene Alipala with an improvised firearm, locally referred to as a ‘sulpak.’ However, while reloading, he was struck by a steel pipe and slashed with a bolo by the pair.
Cervantes was declared dead-on-arrival after sustaining hack wounds across his body, while Rene Alipala was later transferred to a hospital in Bacolod City for additional treatment.
Meanwhile, Rency Alipala surrendered to the Hinigaran Municipal Police Station.
