AN EDUCATION official was killed in a drive-by shooting early Wednesday in Pagadian City, the capital of Zamboanga del Sur, a police official said Wednesday.

Pagadian City police commander Superintendent Glenn Dulawan identified the victim as Dindo Barce, who succumbed to a single bullet wound in the head.

Dulawan said Barce was the principal of the Pagadian National High School.


He said Barce was driving his motorcycle on the way to the school when fatally shot by one of two men riding tandem on another motorcycle around 7 a.m. Wednesday in the village of Kagawasan, Pagadian City.

Dulawan said Barce's wife, who was with him, suffered bruises as the motorcycle they were riding crashed on the pavement.

Dulawan said Barce was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician. Investigation is ongoing.
