On Tuesday, the family and friends of a student killed in a shooting in Cabagan, Isabela, Tuesday are calling for justice.
The victim was identified as Anthony Cammagay, 20, a resident of Barangay Ugad and a second-year BS Agriculture Technology student at a university.
According to the Cabagan Police investigation, the victim was ordered to photocopy the relative’s death certificate, so he left the house.
He was only about 100 meters away from their house when the riding-in-tandem ambushed and shot him.
The victim died immediately due to bullet wounds to various parts of the body.
According to police, this is not the first time someone has allegedly attempted to kill the student.
“Noong May 16 po, meron na rin pong nagtangkang pumatay sa kaniya. Kagagaling niya po sa Barangay Bungad, San Pablo, Isabela at pauwi na sa Cabagan, may sumunod sa kaniya na dalawang tao. Allegedly siya ay pinutukan ngunit siya po ay maswerteng hindi natamaan,” said Police Major Rodante Albano chief of Cabagan Police.
Student killed in Isabela shooting
(On May 16, someone also tried to kill him. He came from Barangay Bungad, San Pablo, Isabela, and was on his way home to Cabagan when two people followed him. Allegedly he was shot, but he was lucky not to be hit.)
The motive for the murder of the victim, who is known to be quiet, kind, without vices, and his only hobby is painting, is still being investigated.
“Noong nakaraang taon, hindi pa tayo ang nakaupong hepe ng Cabagan, napag-alaman natin na siya rin ay na-involve sa road rage na kung saan siya ay hinabol, pero sa kabutihang-palad nakarating siya sa himpilan Cabagan at nakahingi siya ng tulong,” Albano added.
(Last year, we were not yet the chief of Cabagan, we found out that he was also involved in the road rage in which he was chased, but luckily he got to the Cabagan station, and he asked for help.)
Police hope the CCTV footage will help the investigation to identify the two suspects.
