Motorcycle-riding gunmen shot dead three officials of a barangay (village) in Caloocan City in a brazen payroll robbery in Bulacan province Monday noon. The officials of Barangay 176 in Caloocan City were ambushed at Barangay Bahay Pare in Meycauayan, Bulacan, radio dzBB's Denver Trinidad reported. Police are now tracking down the motorcycle-riding men, who took some P3 million in payroll money. The dzBB report identified the fatalities as Rodora Gomito, treasurer of Barangay 176; driver Jaime Mendoza; and a liaison officer. A separate report on dzRH identified the third fatality as Dona Medallos. The dzRH report cited initial information indicating the victims passed through Bahay Pare village in Meycauayan City at about 1 p.m. after withdrawing the money from a branch of the Land Bank of the Philippines.
