A 47-YEAR-OLD man was shot dead by two unidentified men Monday afternoon at Sitio, Lubi, Barangay Luz, Cebu City.
Police identified the victim as Arnel Poalanzar, single and a resident of Sitio sto. Nino Cabanlan, Barangay Luz.
Investigation revealed that Poalanzar was playing mahjong with Alfredo Serilim (informant) together with two other female co-players inside Serilim’s property.
Around 5:30 p.m., while the game was just heating up, one of the gunmen went inside, approached Poalanzar, and shot him using a handgun.
Poalanzar sustained a gunshot wound in his temple. The gunman hurriedly went outside where another man was waiting onboard a motorcycle and fled.
The victim’s playmates who were shocked at the incident were not able to get the plate number of the motorcycle.
Poalanzar was then rushed by his common-law wife to Don Vicente Sotto Medical Center for medical treatment but he was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.
Responding policemen of Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) recovered one empty shell of .45 caliber pistol.
The CCPO is still conducting a hot pursuit operation against the gunman and his companion. (Jerson B. Rufin and Akimi R. Losorata, PIT interns/Sunnex)
