Around 8:45 in the morning, a civilian named Glenn Absin was shot dead by unidentified gunmen wearing bonnets while he was accompanying his child to get a haircut. The incident happened near LBC in Guihulngan City Proper. 

The city's policemen were quick to respond to the incident however the gunmen are still at large and undentified.

My heart goes out to all the victims of the recent violence in my hometown. I hope that one day justice will be served and peace will be restored in the beautiful city of Guihulngan.
