- Rey Galupo

A barangay chairwoman was wounded after she was shot by an unidentifi­ed assailant at her house in Binondo, Manila on Saturday night.

Adora Usero, 47, had just arrived from the Philippine Internatio­nal Convention Center in Pasay where newly elected barangay officials were sworn into office when the suspect broke into her house along Camba street and fired at her at around 8 p.m.

Residents in the area said they heard several gunshots before the assailant fled toward Madrid street.

Probers said they have yet to establish the motive for the attack.
