Los Baños, Laguna – Mayor Caesar Perez was shot last Thursday, December 3 by unidentified assailants right inside the municipal hall.
He expired at a nearby hospital where he was rushed for emergency treatment, after being shot twice in the back of his head.
Reports said Perez was walking back to his office at around 8.30 p.m. from an event when he was approached from behind, surprisingly eluding his security people.
Perez’s name had appeared in Malacanang’s list of politicians with alleged ties to illegal drugs, which is why he was stripped of his powers over the local police in December 2017.
But he denied this.
