Lawyer, cop shot dead in Bulacan

By |


CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan, Philippines—A lawyer and a policeman who had just attended a court hearing here were shot and killed by two unidentified men along the MacArthur Highway on Thursday, authorities said.

Superintendent Dave Poklay, city police chief, said lawyer Lizandro Sanchez and Police Officer 3 Ronnel Coquia, both from Metro Manila, were aboard a grey Nissan Sentra sedan and traveling on the southbound lane of the highway in Barangay Tikay here when the gunmen, who were on a motorcycle, attacked them at around 10:30 a.m.

Poklay said Sanchez and Coquia were in Bulacan to attend a hearing at the Bulacan regional trial court located at the provincial capitol compound.

Poklay said initial reports he received from investigators showed that Sanchez was Coquia’s defense counsel in a robbery case in the Bulacan RTC.

He said investigators have yet to get court records and determine if the attack was related to the pending case.  With Jamie Marie Elona, INQUIRER.net
