BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
A suspect in the shooting incident yesterday afternoon in Valencia town, Negros Oriental, finally surrendered after hours of negotiations with his aunt who allegedly refused to turn him over to the police.
Valencia police chief, Insp. Virgilio Otod, identified the suspect as Bobby Valenciano, 28, a resident of Bacong, Negros Oriental, who is now detained at the town police station.
Police reports said that some workers of the Phil South construction firm claimed that at least two men fired at them at a road leading to the firm’s quarry site in Palinpinon, Valencia.
