The brother and nephew of Vice Mayor Ella Garcia-Yulo were killed in an ambush in Barangay Tinongan, Moises Padilla, Negros Occidental Thursday.

Former president of Association of Barangay Captains Mark Garcia and incumbent councilor Michael Garcia were returning from a campaign rally at Barangay Inolingan when they were fired upon by unidentified armed men.

Both died on the spot due to multiple gunshot wounds.

Garcia-Yulo was able to exit the vehicle and escape the attack.

She was later rescued from the area by Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr., former congressman Jeffrey Ferrer, and retired police colonel Cezar Mancao.
