A FORMER barangay tanod was shot dead by an unidentified man in front of a mall in Quezon City on Thursday afternoon.
Joel Luwalhati, 48 years old, former barangay tanod of Barangay Veterans, Quezon City was shot dead by a man riding a motorcycle in front of SM North Edsa mall, along Edsa southbound.
The witnesses failed to indentify the suspect since he was wearing helmet.
Police reports said that Luwalhati was waiting for a bus going to Laguna after spending his Christmas with his family in QC.
Police Supt. Pedro Sanchez of QC Police District said that they are now trying to identify the suspect with the help of the CCTV cameras from the two establishments near the place of incident.
On December 15, a robbery heist involving the so-called "Martilyo Gang" also happened in the same mall. (Sunnex)
