TACURONG CITY --- The broadcaster who sustained multiple gunshot wounds in an attack here in late October died in a hospital in Davao City.

Benjie Caballero of Radyo ni Juan FM station here passed away at past 3:00 a.m. Sunday while being treated in a hospital in Davao City.

Two of the four bullet wounds that hit him when he was attacked with a .45 caliber pistol by a still unidentified man on October 30 while on his way to work pierced through his lungs.

He was first confined at the St. Louis Hospital here and was transferred later to a more advanced medical facility in Davao City where he eventually succumbed to injuries.

Print and broadcast journalists in Central Mindanao are mourning his demise due to a gruesome atrocity that they condemned early on.

Caballero was immediately buried by relatives in Mlang town in North Cotabato in keeping with Islamic tradition of burying the dead within 24 hours from the time of death.
