The police said that the shooting incident involving the shooting of a 17-year-old girl by a lone gunman in Pasay City may have links to double dealing of illegal drugs, Corinne Catibayan reported on Unang Balita on Friday.
The Barangay 95 CCTV recording of the shooting incident showed the victim standing outside a house in Pasay City where she waited for about 30 minutes.
The Barangay 96 CCTV, meanwhile, showed a motorcycle rider stopping at the end of the same street.
The rider approached the victim and shot her several in the head. The suspect, wearing a closed helmet, immediately fled the scene of the crime.
According to Pasay City Police Chief Cesar Paday-os, the victim was 17 years old and a resident of another barangay in the same city. At the crime scene, the police found a sachet of marijuana.
The police said that the incident may be connected with double dealing of illegal drugs and that there are two suspects.
Paday-os said a witness said that the suspects, a certain Henry and Lan de Vera, were making plans because the victim allegedly failed to remit the proceeds of the sale of illegal drugs.
But the victim, the police also said, does not have a record and is not included in the drug watch list.
A case of murder has been filed against the suspects, who remain at-large.
The relatives of the victim, meanwhile, said they did not know she was involved in the illegal drugs trade. -- BAP, GMA News
