BACOLOD -- An Indian and his driver were killed after being shot by two motorcycle-riding gunmen in Purok Sabes, Barangay Mandalagan in Bacolod City Wednesday morning.

The Indian, who was only identified as Diki, died in the hospital after sustaining 4 gunshot wounds.

His driver, Aldrin Teves, died on the spot after sustaining two gunshot wounds in his head and chest.

According to a witness, she was paying Diki some money that she owed him when the two suspects arrived and suddenly fired shots at the victims.

The suspects, whose faces were covered with a scarf, immediately fled the scene after the shooting.

Police said they are now looking into information they received earlier that Diki had an encounter with a fellow Indian.

Police also noted that the suspects did not take the collection money of the victim.
