A security guard died after he was shot Sunday morning by a still unidentified perpetrator inside the vicinity of an establishment at Zone 5, Bongbongon in Barangay Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro City.
Teodolo Epe, 56-year-old, a resident of Block 2, Lot 14, Buena Oro, Barangay Macasandig has succumbed to two gunshot wounds on his face from a calibre .45 pistol.
Senior Police Officer 4 Jessie Palencia of Police Station 4 Carmen told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro that Epe was already dead when his body was discovered inside the compound of DSC Incorporated.
“His co-security guard discovered the body and called the station around 7:30 in the morning,” he added.
Police recovered two empty shells and deformed slugs of calibre .45 pistol in the crime scene.
According to Palencia, they will be conducting further investigation to establish the identity of the gunman.
“Nobody witnessed the incident and heard the gunshot which is why we still couldn’t determine the number of persons responsible,” he said.
Initially, police eyed attempted robbery as the motive of the incident thus, a representative of the establishment filed complaint of attempted robbery with homicide against the still unidentified perpetrator before the Police Station 4.
