MANILA, Philippines – A woman was shot dead in an ambush that also wounded one of her children on Friday evening in Caloocan City.

Theresita Gomez-Go was driving her sports utility vehicle with her two children on board when two unidentified suspects fired at them along Barangay 162, Santa Quiteria near Tullahan Road.

“Nagkaroon po ng tatlong putok and pinayuko po ako ng mama. Hindi na po siya bumangon after yumuko. Chineck ko po siya and may bleeding na so bumaba po ako agad at humanap ng tulong,” said one of her sons.

Go was declared dead on arrival at a hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound on the side of her body.

One of her sons was grazed by a bullet on the forehead.

Probers said the riding-in-tandem suspects waited for Go’s vehicle to pass by the area.

Authorities are still investigating the incident. Report from Bettina Magsaysay, ABS-CBN News.
