PASUQUIN, Ilocos Norte, Aug. 27–Blood spilled in the house of Benny Paez at Brgy. Sta. Catalina, this town at about 9 p.m. last night when three armed men allegedly attacked him. Paez was hacked and wounded in the body while he apparently tried to repulse the attack. However, during the fray, one of the alleged attackers identified as Osias Castillo was shot and killed on the spot. His companions, Roderick dela Cruz and Rey Caldito were also shot and wounded. Investigators theorized that Paez’s wife Leila and daughter Lyca, 6, were hit in the legs by stray bullets. All victims were hospitalized. Land dispute may have spark the bloodshed, said S/Inspector Romel Ramos, police chief. (tsg/al)
