Police nab 2 suspects in TV cameraman's robbery-killing
The police have arrested two suspects in the robbery-killing of RPN-9 television cameraman Ralph Ruñez.
GMA’s dzBB radio reported that a Caloocan City police official said Thursday that the two suspects were nabbed a few days after Ruñez was killed last week.
Police did not name the suspects or disclose when they were arrested, citing follow-up operations.
The two suspects are being questioned to determine whether they operated on their own or are members of a crime syndicate.
Ruñez, 35, was shot to death July 28 in front of his house along St. Benedict Street in Caloocan City.
He had just withdrawn P35,000 from a bank in Lagro, Quezon City to pay employees of his water refilling station business.
Witnesses said one of the two robbers was aboard the same jeepney that Ruñez rode from the bank and also got off when Ruñez alighted.
Upon reaching the gate of Ruñez' house, the robbers reportedly pointed their guns at the victim and tried to take the bag containing the money. The robbers shot Ruñez when he refused to give up the bag.
They fled using a blue motorcycle that witnesses said had been parked near the crime scene for about half an hour.
Part of the motorcycle's license plate was covered and only the letter T and numbers 2 and 5 were visible.
Ruñez is survived by his wife and four-year-old son.-GMANews.TV
