A barangay leader was shot dead in Caloocan City on Wednesday night.

Tommy Sta. Maria, peacekeeping team leader of Barngay 177, was shot twice in the head by a lone assailant inside their house.

Sta. Maria’s relatives believe a group of robbers was behind the murder. They said a robbery group leader once sent a death threat to the victim due to the latter’s anti-criminality crusade in the area.

Police recovered three empty shells from a 9 millimeter pistol at the crime. They have launched an operation to capture the suspect. – Umagang Kay Ganda, June 21 2012
