Actor Kirk Abella was shot dead after he was mistaken for a gunman by a barangay tanod during the shooting of a British indie movie titled “Going Somewhere” in Barangay Parian, Cebu City Sunday night.

The 30-year-old local actor was playing the role of a masked gunman riding a motorcycle when 51-year old Edgardo Cuizon opened fire with his handgun hitting Abella in the back. He died on the way to the hospital. Cuizon couldn’t explain why he had a gun when tanods are usually only armed with batons and considering that there is a Commission on Elections gun ban.
