Gunman shoots Nueva Ecija town mayor up close: A closed-circuit television footage captured the moment a gunman wearing a hooded jacket approached the vehicle of General Tinio town Mayor Ferdinand Bote and shooting him up close.
Bote was inside his vehicle and was just coming from the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) office in Cabanatuan City when he was shot.
“Papaliko na po siya sa highway, mayroon pong isang naka-black na mama na tumutok po dun sa sasakyan niya. ‘Yun pong sa CCTV nakatayo po eh, wala po sa sasakyan,” NIA-Cabanatuan manager Rose Bote told DZMM radio.
((He was about to make a turn to the highway when a gunman dressed in black approached his vehicle. That's what we saw in the CCTV, he was standing, he was not inside a vehicle.)
The incident came a day after Tanauan City Mayor Antonio Halili was gunned down during a flag ceremony in Batangas on Monday.
