A FORMER driver-aide now a staff member of 1st District Batangas Rep. Eric Buhain was shot dead by riding-in tandem gunmen in Balayan, Batangas.

Slain was Edgardo Sanbuenaventura Jr., 51, a resident of Bgy. District 10, Balayan, Batangas.

Sanbuenaventura was declared dead on the spot from 11 gunshot wounds.

A report submitted to Balayan police chief Maj. Domingo Ballesteros Jr. indicated that the victim was on his way home on a motorcycle when he decided to buy pizza for his family at a pizza store near a flea market in Bgy. Ermita-Calzada at 4:55 p.m. on Friday.

The victim had just alighted from his motorbike and was walking towards the pizza stall when shot by the suspects riding-in-tandem.

The gunmen fled after the killing.

Recovered at the crime scene were 11 empty shells from a cal. 45 pistol.

“We’re are eyeing personal grudge as motive for the killing. Mukhang meron matin­ding galit ang mga suspect, tinadtad ng bala ang biktima,” Ballesteros said.

The official said they are now reviewing the CCTV footages in the area for possible identification and arrest of the gunmen.
