ARMED men shot a barangay chairman in front of his family in Iligan City on Monday.

Alzuhry Dipatuan, chairman of Brgy. Dipatuanin Bacolod-Kalawi, Lanao del Sur, suffered two bullet wounds.

The incident occurred around 8 p.m., in front of a restaurant along Gregorio T. Lluch st., Brgy. Pala-o, Iligan.

Dipatuan was driving a Toyota Fortuner (ADO7257), and was with his family when attacked by gunmen. He was about to park the car when he was shot.

The assailants quickly fled on an unidentified vehicle. Dipatuan also tried to drive his vehicle, but crashed into a Toyota Vios, a parked Isuzu Alterra, and a Toyota Innova.

Dipatuan was rushed to the Adventist Medical Center and was later transferred to another hospital in Cagayan de Oro City for further treatment.

Operatives are still trying to determine the assailants' identities, whereabouts, and are looking at "rido" as among possible motives for the attack.— John Roson
