“Papa, tabang (father, help),” 16-year-old Sangguniang Kabataan chair Imee Occeña asked her father, Armando.

She also begged the gunman to spare her life but he ignored her, and shot her between the eyes at close range.

Imee, and three other barangay officials of Kapitan Ramon in Silay City, Negros Occidental, died while three others were wounded when former barangay captain Noel Ayalin, 48, barged into a meeting of the barangay council and shot all those inside at about 8:30 a.m. yesterday.moremoremore
