Initial investigation revealed that PSMS Sofronio Capitle Jr. and PSSG Dominador Gacusan Jr., operatives of the Mabalacat City police, were shot dead on Saturday in Bgy.

Pasiwen vowed that no stone will be left unturned and authorities are exerting all efforts to identify the suspects and the motive behind the attack.
