Eyewitnesses narrated that the gunmen, numbering about 15, shot sporadically having positioned some of their men around the house while others moved into the sitting room where they whisked Mrs. Abiante away.
The gun men were, however, challenged by one of Mrs. Abiante’s daughters who was home when they struck. But her efforts did nothing to stop the gunmen used the butts of their gun on her head and right hand leaving her with swollen body..
