MANILA, Philippines — A trader was killed and two others were injured when they were shot by still unidentified suspects in Pasay City before dawn Friday, police said.

Lieutenant Geronimo Diaz identified the fatality as Efren Albao who was shot at 4:30 a.m along Galvez Street, Pasay City by at least three men onboard a motorcycle.

He said two others were injured, but their names were not immediately available.

Radio reports said the fatality and his companions were inside an L-300 van while waiting for supplies for their chicken business when the suspects arrived and opened fire at their vehicle.

Albao, also a village official, was rushed to the hospital, but was declared dead on arrival.

Diaz said authorities were looking into politics and business as among the possible motives behind the attack.
