Shots were fired at a car owned by a sister of a candidate for city councilor in Cebu early Monday.

A witness said a motorcycle-riding man repeatedly fired at the Toyota Fortuner parked along Padilla extension in Barangay Tejero.

The car is owned by Liezl Ignacio, sister of Barangay Inayawan Captain Lutherlee "Lot-Lot" Ignacio, who is running for city councilor.

The Fortuner was parked near the pharmacy that Liezl and her husband manage.

Ignacio believes the shooting is politically motivated because the service car of his village was also fired upon last Friday.

Police investigators are now examining a closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage to identify the gunman in the latest attack.
