Philippines mayor Antonio Halili shot dead by sniper, police chief says

A controversial Philippines mayor who gained notoriety for parading people arrested on drug offenses was shot and killed by a sniper at a flag-raising ceremony at Tanauan City Hall Monday morning.
     Tanauan City Mayor Antonio Halili was killed by a single shot to the chest from an unknown assailant, Police Superintendent Renato Mercado told CNN, in a hit captured on video which showed scenes of panic seconds after the shot was fired.
     In the video, Halili is seen standing in a line with government employees as the flag is raised and those in attendance sing the national anthem.As the camera strays to film another group, a single shot rings out, followed by screams and a woman's voice, saying "oh my God" in English. While the victim is not seen on camera after the shot is fired, the content of the video could be upsetting to some viewers.
