The victims were having fun in the area when the suspects arrived and proceeded to the room rented by Remia and shot her repeatedly, causing her instantaneous death.
Remia’s assistant, who was outside the room, and her huband were also shot by the suspects.
The victims were rushed to San Joaquin District Hospital where the two women were declared dead on arrival by attending physicians. Bonifacio was in critical condition.
