A brief Google search of words “Pasay councilor shot” led to an earlier news that a  “Pasay City councilor and one of his bodyguards were shot and wounded by still-unidentified gunmen who waited for the local official to come out of a bar” early morning of June 23, 2017, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

PDI on that June 23 incident identified the victim as “Borbie Rivera, 39, and his security aide Alex Dominguez, 54, remained under observation in the hospital after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds in the attack outside Titan Z International Entertainment bar on Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard also in Pasay.”

Indeed, it was Councilor Rivera who was gunned down, according to Rappler. He was brought to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
