THREE mo­tor­cy­clerid­ing suspects killed tri­cy­cle driver at Purok Sam­bag in Barangay Libas, Is­abela town on Tues­day af­ter­noon.

The 39-year-old vic­tim was iden­ti­fied as Jorie Boy Fa­bil­lar, alias “Kokey,” a res­i­dent of the said barangay.

Po­lice re­ports showed the vic­tim was driv­ing his tri­cy­cle to fetch his child in a school to­gether with one pas­sen­ger.

A black Russi mo­tor­cy­cle where the three uniden­ti­fied per­sons stopped and alighted.

One of them drew a short firearm and im­me­di­ately shot the vic­tim sev­eral times hit­ting him on the head and other parts of his body.

The vic­tim was rushed to Ig­na­cio Lac­son Ar­royo Sr. Me­mo­rial Dis­trict Hospi­tal but was de­clared dead on ar­rival.

The suspects fled to­wards the ar­eas of Barangays Se­bu­cauan and Sikatuna also of Is­abela town.
