The body of Tamano Kamindan Mamalapat, an alleged hit man of the Ampatuan clan is taken out of Gaisano Citimall (former JS Gaisano) in Davao City. Mamalapat was shot at around 7 p.m., Thursday by one of the police escorts of the Ampatuans’ political rival Esmael “Toto”Mangudadatu who is running for governor of Maguindanao Province. A saleslady at the fourth floor of the mall said he saw the man running before he felled near the Kitchen Wares section of the mall to the bewilderment of shoppers who scampered off for safety. The mall had to be closed earlier than its regular schedule. The incident happened early on in the campaign period of this year’s national elections.
