A 50-YEAR-OLD boutique owner on Monday was shot dead by a man who pretended to buy a gift for her daughter in Talisay, Batangas.

Talisay Municipal Police Station chief Capt. Llewelyn Reyes identified the victim as Victoria Balba, a businesswoman and an overseas Filipino worker residing in Bgy. Bancoro, San Nicolas, Batangas.

Balba succumbed to a gunshot wound in the head.
