Lumad stude killed in shooting incident

DAVAO City — A Lumad student died Tuesday night despite attempts to save his life after a shooting incident in a Davao del Norte town, a human rights group said.

Obillo Bay-ao, who sustained serious gunshot wounds, was a grade six student of Salugpongan Ta ‘Tanu Igkanogon Community Learning Center (STTICLC-Dulyan), said Save Our Schools Network (SOS) on its Facebook post.

SOS said Bay-ao was rushed to the hospital at around 5 pm, few hours after he was shot in Talaingod, Davao del Norte.

A member of a Citizens Armed Forces Geographical Unit (Cafgu) was behind the shooting incident, which took place at around 2:30 pm, SOS said.

Bay-ao was declared dead by Davao Regional Hospital in Tagum City at 9 pm, it added. He was 19.

SOS held an indignation rally on the incident yesterday. (davaotoday.com)
