Killing of three fellows puzzles probers

SAN PABLO, Isabela — Isabela Police investigators are zeroing on leads on the killing of three men at the barangay outpost in Barangay San Vicente here, police said.

However, police have been puzzled on the real motive of the killing of Benedict Crisologo of San Vicente in San Pablo, Tony Ballabo of Colunguan in Santo Tomas and Jerbie Cureg of Baleleng in Santo Tomas, all in Isabela.

The killers used an Armalite rifle and a 12-gauge shotgun in the killing.

Crisologo, Ballabo and Cureg were having a drinking spree when the armed men suddenly arrived and peppered them with bullets.

The gunmen immediately fled, leaving the three men who died on the spot. Philippine News Agency
