ILOILO CITY, Philippines Authorities are looking for a 40-year-old man who allegedly shot and wounded his ex-girlfriend during a quarrel in Guimbal, Iloilo Wednesday.
Newport Piosca fled after reportedly shooting Julie May Nalago, 24, said Senior Inspector Norlan Perante, town police chief.
Perante said Piosca visited Nalago, who was celebrating her birthday, at her house in Barangay Camanggahan at around 11 a.m.
Piosca reportedly pleaded with the woman to give their relationship another chance, but she refused.
The suspect returned at around 4 p.m. to talk with the woman, but they argued, prompting the man to shoot her in the knee.
