Cop slain by ‘riding-in-tandem’ in Negros Oriental

BACOLOD CITY - A policeman was gunned down by alleged two unidentified men on a motorcycle in Barangay 1, Siaton, Negros Oriental late Thursday, July 9.

Slain was Police Staff Sergeant Bobster Guillarawan. He was assigned at the First Provincial Mobile Force Company in Barangay Napacao.

Negros Oriental Police Information Officer Chief Master Sgt. Edelberto Euroba III said the victim was riding his motorcycle on his way home from duty at around 11:30 p.m. when he was waylaid, and shot by the gunmen.

Guillarawan was rushed to a hospital, where he was declared dead.

Euroba said that the perpetrators probably monitored the victim’s activities prior to the gun attack.

He said Guillarawan was previously assigned as an intelligence operative at Bayawan City Police Station.

He said the victim had no previous records or complaints against him, which could have triggered the killing. 

Police are investigating the incident to determine the motive. They already have persons of interest.
