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.
