Riding-in-tandem murder, rob motorcyclist in Valenzuela

Motorcycle-riding gunmen murdered and robbed a motorcycle rider in Barangay Paso de Blas, Valenzuela City last Friday.

According to Corrine Catibayan’s report on “24 Oras Weekend,” the gunmen rode up to the victim from behind and shot him in the back.

This victim, identified as Luigi Hernando, fell from his motorcycle. The suspects then took his bag, which contained money,  took the victim's motorcycle, and roared off.

The victim had just come from the bank and the suspects appeared to have been watching Hernando even then.

According to his friend, Hernando worked as a company messenger and collector.

“Parang nasundan na po ‘yung kaibigan namin. Hindi po namin alam kung doon pa lang po sa banko ay nasundan na po siya, eh. Sana lang po, kinuha na lang nila ‘yung gamit ng kaibigan namin atsaka ‘yung motor. Hindi na lang po pinatay,” Psy, not his real name, said.

The Valenzuela City Police said they were still looking into the amount of money stolen.

“Undergoing ang investigation but may mga na-ano tayo sa mga CCTVs, may mga lead tayong natutumbok ngayon,” said Police Colonel Fernando Ortega of the Valenzuela Police. — Joahna Lei Casilao/DVM, GMA News
