“I am pleased to announce that tension in the town of Magsingal, Ilocos Sur has been defused as more police personnel were sent to the area to maintain peace and prevent the situation from further escalating after two opposing groups each led by political aspirants figured in a shooting incident on Saturday morning that left four persons dead and four others wounded,” said PNP acting Officer-in-Charge Lieutenant General Vicente Danao Jr.
