A VILLAGE councilman, who was sued for swindling and estafa, and her two companions were killed when unidentified suspects shot them while on their way home the other day in Marilao, Bulacan.

The fatalities were identified as Luzviminda San Pedro Roqueo, kagawad of Bgy. Sta Rosa 1; Edgardo V. Santos, tricycle driver; and Victoria Y. Santos.
Investigators said the victims were on board a tricycle when shot repeatedly by the suspects at 1 p.m. along the road in Bgy. Sta. Rosa 1. Luzviminda and Edgardo died on the spot while Victoria was declared dead on arrival in the hospital.
Investigators believed that Luzviminda was the target of the suspects because of several complaints filed against her in line with swindling and estafa cases in connection with selling of residential lots in Marilao.
