18-year-old shot dead by another rider in Muntinlupa City

An 18-year-old motorcycle rider was killed while the minor riding with him was critically injured by after they turned a corner in New Compound, Muntinlupa City.

According to Vonne Aquino's report on 24 Oras, Jason Nazareno was immediately killed when another rider with a black helmet shot him and his companion Ricky Leuterio as they were on their way home from a birthday party.

A witness said in the report on Wednesday that Nazareno tried to flee from the shooter but tipped the motorcycle over while turning a corner, allowing the suspect to shoot him and Leuterio.

"Balak ko po sanang tulungan kasi nasemplang eh may narinig po akong dalawang putok ng baril kaya di muna po ako bumalik," the witness recalled.

Nazareno's relatives are clueless on the possible motives behind the shooting.

"Ang masasabi lang po mali yung papatayin nila. Napakabait po ng kuya ko po siya, pero bakit po ganun ang ginawa sa kanya. Sa ulo pa ang tama. Hindi po siya adik," said a relative of Nazareno's.  —Rie Takumi/NB, GMA News
