A report from the Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office (NOPPO) on Tuesday said Master Sgt. Jeseden Amorganda Carriaga, 54, of Barangay Interior Cabugan, Bindoy, Negros Oriental, was shot by two gunmen riding a motorcycle on Monday in Barangay Lumbangan, Mabinay.

Initial investigation showed that Carriaga was at the house of village councilor Tobias Villarejo for a settlement/agreement with Ronie Cabaron, who was allegedly indebted to him when the suspects fired at him as he was about to leave on board his motorcycle.

He was shot several times and was declared dead on arrival at the Mabinay Community Hospital.

Police investigators recovered from the crime scene five fired cartridges of a caliber .45 pistol.
