BUTUAN CITY – Three days after the slaying of a Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) chair here, another village official was killed by still unidentified assailants on Friday night.

Police said Florencio Cagas, the incumbent chief of Barangay Sto. Niño, was gunned down at around 7:10 p.m. in Purok 7 of the said village.

The victim succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead on arrival at a private hospital here.

In a statement Saturday, the Liga ng mga Barangay Butuan described the victim as good-natured.

“Hopefully, justice will be served soon,” the group said, while calling on authorities to fast-track the investigation.
