SUBIC, Zambales – A former barangay official was shot by unidentified men while driving his tricycle in Barangay Cawag of this town, late Thursday afternoon, January 31.
In a report by Chief Inspector Jude Bryan B. Maguddayao, acting police chief of Subic Municipal Police Station, the victim was identified as Bernard F. Madamba, 46 years old, former barangay kagawad and a tricycle driver, and resident of P-3, Brgy. Wawandue, Subic.
