RESIDENTS of a controversial village in Molo, Iloilo City accused a tanod or watchman for indiscriminate firing Sunday.

Tanod Richard Yanson allegedly fired twice an unknown gun caliber which caused alarm at Brgy. West Habog-Habog, Molo.

Yanson fled after he sensed PO1 Chris Royce Maghari and PO1 Stephen John Barrera of Task Force Boulevard approach the scene of the incident.

The police also asked help from Punong Barangay John Paul Caliso to arrest Yanson but to no avail.
