A man who allegedly bombed the house of a local offiocial in southern Philippines last year was killed in an apparent shootout with unidentified gunmen on Monday, police said.

A fragmentation grenade was also found near the body of 24-year old Nasser Beda following the 8:30 a.m. shooting in downtown Cotabato City, Senior Superintendent Willie Dangane, city police chief, told Xinhua Tuesday.

Dangane said the victim's companion, identified as one Samsodin Dam, 32, was also seriously wounded and had to be rushed to a local hospital for treatment from multiple gunshot wounds.

Beda is a suspect behind the bomb explosion outside the house of former Maguindanao Congressman Didagen Dilangalen on Dec. 27, 2009 that wounded several people.

"He (Beda) was arrested and charged in court together with other suspects in connection with the bomb attack but was able to post bail and was subsequently released," Dangane said, adding an investigation into the killing is now conducted by local police.
