In a statement, the Bulacan Provincial Police Office (PPO) identified the victim as Major Dennis Moreno, 41, presently assigned to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Reserve Command Headquarters.

Bulacan PPO chief Colonel Relly Arnedo said that based on the account of the victim’s secretary, Moreno was inside his personal office in Barangay Marungko, Angat town when an unidentified suspect entered and fatally shot him multiple times using a short firearm.

The suspect fled aboard a motorcycle.

He was rushed to Twin Care Hospital for medical treatment but was pronounced dead by the attending physician.

Arnedo immediately ordered the activation of a flash alarm and initiated a dragnet operation to locate the suspect.
