Habal-habal driver Wilfred Abril, 20, was shot to death in front of the old public market in Brgy. Poblacion, Manjuyod town, around 10:55 a.m., according to a report from the provincial police.

Abril was sitting on a concrete fence when two men approached, and one of these shot him several times with a caliber-.45 pistol, the report said.

The assailants then fled to the north, aboard a motorcycle.
