A LAWYER was gunned down by still unknown assailants at Hagkol, Barangay Poblacion, Valencia City, Bukidnon, Sunday evening.
Killed by two gunmen was Nicolas Gomez, a lawyer from Davao City, who rented a house at Poblacion, said Valencia police chief Col. Surki Sereñas.
Sereñas said the suspects were riding an XRM motorcycle when they shot Gomez.
The victim was brought to a hospital but the attending physician, Dr. Juniver Flores, declared him dead on arrival.
Sereñas said they are still investigating the motive for the killing and are determining the identity of the attackers.
He said the shooting could either be work-related or due to a land dispute. He did not elaborate.
