AN AMERICAN executive of an English language training center was shot dead by robbers at a convenience store in Manila, the police said.
Police said Robert Edward Armstrong was inside the store on Sunday when four robbers ordered the employees and at least three customers into the storage room while they emptied the cash register.
Police officer Alonzo Layugan said 45-year-old Armstrong was shot when he tried to dash out of the store.
Layugan said Monday that the wounded American managed to get into his car but one of the robbers shot him again. Armstrong died before he reached the hospital. His hometown was not immediately known.
Police said the other customers and employees were unharmed. The robbers are still at large. (AP)
