AN OFF-DUTY security guard was killed and robbed of his motorcycle in downtown Zamboanga City, the police said.
The Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO) said the incident happened around 5 a.m. Saturday along J.S. Alano Street, which is a stone throw away from the ZCPO headquarters.
The victim was identified as Danilo Lactuan, 59, who was declared dead upon arrival by the attending physician at the Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC).
Investigation showed the victim was standing beside his motorcycle while waiting for his wife who was at the waterfront market when the suspects appeared and shot him at close range, the police said.
The gunmen, who were on foot, took the victim’s motorcycle and sped towards the direction of R. T. Lim Boulevard, the police said.
Most likely the motive of the incident is robbery, the police said.
