COTABATO CITY - Suspected hired killers shot dead the president of the Association of Barangay Captains in Isabela City, Basilan and wounded two other members of the group in a daring attack on Sunday night in Zamboanga City.

Col. Alexander Lorenzo, Zamboanga City police director, said on Monday morning that Franklyn Galos Tan, chairman of Barangay Seaside in Isabela City, one of two cities in the nearby island province of Basilan, died on the spot from bullet wounds sustained in the attack.

The incident left Jaider Jumdan, chairman of Barangay Kaumpurnah Zone 2 in Isabela City, badly hurt and a third victim, Daryl Jalani, barangay chairman of Kaumpurnah Zone 3 in the same city, wounded superficially in his lower leg.

They were attacked by two men armed with pistols while in the parking lot of the Puerta Del Ciudad Hotel along a busy stretch of the Vitaliano Agan Street in Zamboanga City.

Their attackers had fled using a getaway Suzuki Raider 150 motorcycle towards the direction of Barangay Sta. Maria, a residential area in Zamboanga City.
