A 50-year-old widower died while his son was injured after being shot by armed suspects on February 11 in Brgy. Balintawak, Escalante City, Negros Occidental.

Police investigations show that Joseph Arnaiz and his friend were drinking alcoholic beverages inside a garage, when the six unidentified suspects on board two motorcycles, arrived.

Arnaiz, 25, was then shot in the left arm by the one of the suspects.

His father, Victor, 50, who tried to rescue him, was also shot in the head, police investigations further showed.

The elder Arnaiz, who succumbed to a gunshot wound in the head, died, while he and his son were brought to Vicente Gustilo District Hospital in Escalante City, for treatment of the injuries, police said.
