Senior citizen killed in Malabon shooting

A male senior citizen was killed on Sunday morning after being shot by an unidentified gunman in Barangay Baritan in Malabon City.

The incident happened at around 5 a.m. along Borja Street, with residents hearing several gunshots before finding the lifeless body of the victim, according to a report by Luisito Santos on Super Radyo dzBB.

The family of the victim refrained from naming him, but identified him as a resident of Sampaloc, Manila.

The Malabon City Police have been investigating the incident, but have not yet given a possible motive to the killing. They said they will review CCTV footage in nearby areas to give a lead on the suspect.

CCTV footage shared by Barangay Bitan showed that the suspect pretended to be a person with disability before firing at the victim.




A large amount of money was also recovered on the body of the victim.

A part of Borja Street was closed to motorists while investigation was ongoing. —Giselle Ombay/KG, GMA Integrated News
