Mayor Jerry Treñas has ordered the Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) to investigate the killing of two men who were shot to death in Jaro and La Paz districts Sunday.

They were also directed to set up checkpoints.

Police Colonel Martin Defensor, the city police director, assured Treñas that the ICPO was “on top of the situation.”

The first shooting took place in Barangay Cuartero, Jaro a little past noon while the one in La Paz happened in Barangay Nabitasan at around 12:30 p.m.

The Jaro shooting victim was 42-year-old call center agent and drug surrenderer Alain Muller while the victim in the La Paz shooting was Delfin Britanico, a 37-year-old businessman.

Muller was peppered with bullets outside his house by two masked men who alighted from a silver-painted car while a motorcycle-driving Britanico was ambushed by gunmen who were in a black van.
