MANILA, Philippines – Sticking to a routine may have proved fatal to a Chinese couple who were attacked by at least two still-unidentified men in Malabon City while delivering their employees’ payroll on Saturday.

The victims, Mintin Ong, 70, and his wife, Quency, 60, were declared dead on arrival at the Manila Central University hospital after they were shot by the assailants in front of their factory, White Horse Plastic Factory, on Dizon Street around 7 a.m.

Quency was hit pointblank in the head, while her husband sustained a gunshot wound in the chest.

Senior Suerintendent Ferdinand Ampil, officer-in-charge of the local police, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that the couple had made it their routine to give their employees their salaries on a Saturday.

At that time, Ampil said, the victims were bringing to the factory almost P100,000 in cash. The money has not been recovered.

Although there was a closed-circuit television camera in the area, Ampil said this was not working at that time.

The weapon used has also not been recovered.

Ampil said, however, that police managed to retrieve two empty shells from the crime scene. He said these would be subjected to a ballistics exam to help the authorities in their investigation.

    It’s not more fun in the Philippines. It’s dangerous in PH. Calling Pnoy, we know you been so quiet about this topic. Until when are you going to ignore this rising crime?

    Dre, walang sinabi yan. Nung panahon ni FVR, yun ang pinakaastig. Andaming tsekwang tiniktikan ng surveillance ang bank accounts ng mayayaman tapos sabay kidnap, pag nakuha na ang ransom, sabay patay. Andali ng pera nun dre. Kasama pa ng militar / intel. E pabor din si FVR sa ganun, malalim din ang galit nya sa mga intsik. Natigil lang ng konti nung napatay yung manugang ni Gokongwei, pero saglit lang tapos tuloy ulit. Kahit paano saludo ako kay FVR. Hindi sya nagnakaw sa kaban ng bayan, sa intsik nanggaling ang tinatamasa nya ngayon. Yan ang tunay na makabayan na presidente. Tignan lang natin kung papalag etong mga intsik nato. mga linta, sipsip ng sipsip ng dugo ng Pilipino.

    the more we need to restore the death penalty…the criminals are so daring these days..and killings is too rampant to ignore…death penalty might not solve the problem but at least it will be a deterrent…. the government should address this problem now before our country will be declared a killing field by some human rights or other organizations critical to these crimes…it’s obvious that poverty plays a big factor in those crimes and the government should also address the said problem….somebody got killed a few meters from a police station…hold ups at the very noses of the security guards in some malls..these days people just get killed as if they’re chicken or dog…this has to stop….if we have to feel safe in our country…this is adversely affecting our tourism industry…countries will give advisories not to go to the Philippines…which is not only a shameful thing…but also counter productive…so the government should do something about it now…before somebody or group will put the law in their hands…and solve this problem in their own ways….

       i agree! ive been to a lot of other countries, tourism is a very big thing, and also foreign investors, that’s a part of how other countries improved and progressed forward…. dito kasi maraming kababayan may sira ang ulo, dun sila kumakampi sa pumapatay

  • Angel of God

  • Angel of God

    To the killers….. For you to survive, you have to take the life of another??? and the lives you have stolen has been living a meaningful one…. you should’ve killed yourself, since in this world you have no place to be anyway…. wala kayong kwenta, oo sinusuka kayo ng mundo…
