A female church worker was shot in the head and killed in the Philippines on Wednesday outside the main Catholic church in Bongao town, capital of the southwestern province of Tawi-Tawi, reports Ucanews.
Police reports said Conchita “Ching” Francisco, a 62-year-old school principal, was shot in the head after attending evening Mass.
Oblates of Mary Immaculate missionary Priest Jun Mercado said Francisco was about to take a ride on a motorcycle when assailants shot her. The gunmen remain unidentified.
“She died instantly,” Mercado wrote in a Facebook post. “Earlier, she led the rosary and was the commentator at Mass.”
He added that he arrived at the parish convent at around 6 pm “only to be met by a murder.”
