BACOLOD City – Two persons were arrested at Barangay Cabadiangan, Sipalay City, Negros Occidental on June 19, 2019 a day after they figured in the shooting of a father and his son at the said village last Monday.

Police identified the suspects as Boboy Vendersin and Roger Pedrosa.

Police Major John Joel Batusbatusan, Sipalay City police chief, said the suspects allegedly shot Welfredo Caballero, 65, and Donald, 29, both residents of the said village.

Batusbatusan said the victims were crossing the river on their way to their farm when the suspects allegedly shot them.

The victims sustained gunshot wounds and were brought to a hospital. They were later transferred to Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital here.

Police eyed land conflict as the motive.
