A cigarette vendor suspected of snatching a necklace was killed by multiple gunshots by his victim Saturday night in Sampaloc, Manila.

The body was identified by his live-in partner as Renato Sanchez, 30, resident of Isarog Street in Quezon City and a member of the notorious “Bahala na Gang,” as indicated by his tattoos.

Investigation conducted by Senior Police Officer 2 Ronald Gallo of the Manila Police District homicide section showed that Sanchez grabbed the necklace of his victim around 8 p.m. in the Quiapo area and boarded a jeepney.

His victim, however, took another jeepney and followed Sanchez, cutting his way along Laong Laan Street corner Gelinos Street in front of Perpetual Help Hospital.

A security guard of the hospital told the police that the still unidentified gunman demanded the return of his necklace.

After Sanchez handed the necklace, the suspect asked the other passengers to get off the jeepney. He then pulled out a gun and shot Sanchez multiple times and fled toward Lacson Street.

Police are still investigating the identity of the gunman.

  • Timothy Te-Co

    Di ka na naawa sa pulis na nagpoprotekta sa gagong yun….binawasan mo ang alagad nya…bwahahahaha….mabuhay ka brod…

  • WeAry_Bat

    The police have better use of their time than discovering the gunman.

    • regie

      tama. mga pulis ilagay na lang yan sa unsolved file or cold file…wag ng sayangin ang pera ng bayan sa mga katulad niyan..

      • Drillon Recto

        Or solved file dahil sigurado di naman 1st time snatcher yung napatay.

    • popeyee

      Walang magagawa ang mga pulis kundi sabihin sa publiko na “mag-ingat sa mga madurugas at wag ng magdadala ng mga mamahaling gamit”. Mga inutil!

  • penoy2012

    Kung binuhay pa yan, mas madami pang magiging biktima. Hindi naman mahuhuli yan dahil protektado ng pulis.

  • dxdaistar

    this is Justice! I hope this gunman makes more actions! Yan ang sinasabing makakakita rin ng katapat.

  • david

    “vigilante with a cause.” talo pa ang mga pulis sa paghabol sa snatchers.

    • Barangkuag

      baka off duty pulis yun brod!

      • Drillon Recto

        di ba nga pag off-duty pulis saka lumalarga mga kriminal. Coincidence?

      • ravindrama

        Pwede……tsk..tsk..tsk..

      • pinoydin

        Yun din ang iniisip ko.

      • dodot24

        Tama ka igan dahil sabi niya sa Driver ” Pulis ako habulin ninyo ang Jeep Na iyon “

  • berong es

    sunugin na lang yung bangkay and lets move on…

  • speedstream2

    In a civilized society, taking the law into one’s own hands is not a good idea, but when citizens are just about fed up with recurring crimes, anemic law enforcement and snail-paced justice, street justice is bound to happen. And most citizens will simply say: good riddance.

    • Ross18

      Very sad but i agree with you kabayan 100%. Mabuhay ang Pilipnas.

      • Jr Derha

        concur, if asa ka sa police.. 48 yrs…. reality check.. sad but true.

    • klepto

      By right the law protects the citizens. But since our laws are just jokes and suggestions not to mention the people who create and implement them are also the main law breakers, everyone of us should have the right to protect ourselves from dangers. Good job for the shooter. One less criminal roaming the streets.

    • sondo1968

      Who cares about taking law into his own hand !!! yan ganyan na gayan na scenario, baliktarin natin ang pangyayari yun snatcher ang nakabaril nun ini-snatch an nya…..sa tingin mo yun ibang pasahero walang karapatan na barilin din yun snatcher !!! That is bullshit…yan mga yan pag pinaabot pa ng presinto makakawala at gagawa ulit ng panibagong krimen kaya dapat talaga, pay multiple offender pinapatay na agad

    • Johnny

      Sana sinama na din ung mga kurakot at incompetent kagaya nila Estrada, et al. Di lang necklace ninanakaw ng mga un.

      Mga politikong sobrang salot sa lipunan at di alam ginagawa.

  • ThePattern

    10 thumbs up!!!!!!!

  • tra6Gpeche

    Why am I feeling good about the victim taking the law into his own hands? Perhaps, I am tired of all the nuisances and headaches inflicted to innocent Filipinos by the evil elements in the Philippines. I, myself, was a victim long time ago!

  • GustoKoHappyKa

    GOOD NEWS!!!

  • $14334231

    score one for the vigilante!!!!!….

  • 1voxPopuli

    concerned ako sa jeepney driver, sana di nasira yung jeep nya nung pagbabarilin yung snatcher sa loob ng jeep.

    sana makabyahe na sya today.

    • Drillon Recto

      Meron pa bang jeep na di sira sira?

  • ofwsagitnangsilangan

    Another one bite the dust….

  • virgoyap

    Parang isang magandang action movie. He is acting like Bruce Willis. Poor snatcher he victimized the wrong guy!

  • Janch

    Snatcher meets killer. We know how that would end.

  • indiosbravos2002

    Thats what happens when you take stuff from others.

  • 26ponks

    okey yan a…sana ganyan na lahat mangyari sa mga snatcher…

  • Ignatius Loyola

    Remember “Silence of the Lamb”

  • rj

    HAPPY ENDING!!!

  • Jimbox88

    This looks fine.
    Un nga lang ang mga magnanakaw ng milyon-milyon tinatawag na Honorable!

    • marlowe

      tama ka dyan bro…dapat sila yung tinamaan ng bala…

  • Drillon Recto

    At least 1 criminal prevented another from committing a crime.

  • ghecko

    WOW!!! I was impressed. Hindi kasi mapuksa ang ganitong problema sa
    Pilinas ng mga autoridad dahil sa bulok na sistema at minsan ang utak ng ganitong mga operasyon
    ay mga pulis o malalaking tao rin, kaya ang taong bayan na lang ang
    gagawa ng paraan. Yan ang dapat sa mga snatcher at magnanakaw, napaka
    easy lang sa kanila magnakaw ng pinaghirapan ng ibang tao kaya ito ang
    dapat sa kanila.

  • Hunter421

    Beautiful! An armed society is a polite society…

  • NoPeopleLuck

    Ito ba yong nakunan ng video nag snatch ng kwintas sa jeep ito nga cguro yon…tapos nag lakad lang palayo…parang baliwala…lang. Ngayon dead na sya…lakas ng loob mo brod, duon sa dumali mali ang pumatay pero kailangan gawin para hindi pamarisan…gun ban yan…

  • Yahoogle

    One “bahala na gang” member, down! Owwrighttt!

  • BatangSingapore

    hoy ikaw manunulat, paano mo nalaman na dun sa mamang namaril ang kwintas na kinuha sa bahala na gang member? dibat unidentified yun tao.

    ang ganitong uri ng panunulat ay halimbawa ng pagpapaikot. dahil kulang ang nilalaman nito.

    • maypakialamtayo

      okey na yon kung di man sa namaril yung kwintas, ang importante patay yung snatcher, pwede ring kasama nya yon.

      • BatangSingapore

        patay yun isang kriminal pero nabuhay din yun isa pa. paikot ikot lang, get mo ba? unless tinama ang balita at maari natin sabihin justice ito.

  • ryan andres

    Serves him right.

  • jack collins

    whoever you are, nice work…find time to kill the others in phils please…there’s a lot of them there…seriously 3rd world

  • Juan Delacruz

    cool

  • BoyBakal

    Necklace vigilante…swift justice.
    Necklace is a man’s best friend. In time of need, the necklace is ready for pawnshop.

  • Orod II

    Good if the so-called snatcher is guilty of the crime. But what if he is not? What happened to the election gun ban? I guess this goes to show that people will continue to carry their guns regardless of the ban imposed by the government. What happened to all the people that were caught with carrying illegal firearms during the current and previous bans? Does anyone track it down? I bet one of the reason why gun ban does not work because police will only report how many they “supposedly caught” but no names is mentioned and no one cares to follow up and report what happened to the criminals.

  • kismaytami

    Ika nga ni PO1 Desk Officer… “Wala kaming magagawa riyan.”

  • napa modesto

    This is good news. Kung nahuli nang pulis yan matagal pa bago kasuhin tapos makaka post pa yan nang bail at mangbibiktima pa ng iba.

  • askal2u

    tama yan bat kilangan pa ikulong mga yan at tapos palalayain din, dapat todasin lahat ng kriminal na mahuli.

  • bayankopdi

    MALAS MO LANG SANCHEZ AT NATIEMPOHAN MO ANG MAY BARIL. SIGURO MATAGAL MO NG GINAGAWA ETO…SORRY KA NA LANG…HEHEHE

  • Milesaway

    I love it… more news like this will have better economy with the influx of visitors to the city… I can visit Manila as well without fear. Well done & congratulations who ever you are…

  • 444mangyan888

    most comments here convey rejoicing or approval to the killing of the thief. So it is justice..?? when citizens seem to be helpless to the criminality in their society, they justify it their right to seek justice their own way.. Reminds me of Duterte and Lim.
    But why are we so apathetic with the prevalent and unimaginable corruption in our midst..?? Corruption happens through thievery,,!!! Is it because we are innately corrupt..? That it is only a matter of opportunities that hamper any Filipino from doing a corrupt act..? Corruption is thievery..!!! a corrupt citizen is a thief..worse than a lowly snatcher or a petty criminal, for they can be possibly reformed..!!!
    Are we a nation of thieves..??

    • tra6Gpeche

      It seems that way, kabayan!

    • Cool LahgotzMO

      For a hopeless society.. Yes ! the killing is justified. Case closed !

  • frkim

    This is good as it will send string message to those who are planning or about to do the same. These people no longer deserves justice in court, they are always at it and never respect the law and the society, so they deserve instant justice.

  • maypakialamtayo

    mabuti nga sa’yo magnanakaw ka.

  • sasama

    …kudos to gunman..well done…

  • $16638896

    that’s what you get…very good!

  • oaba09

    I usually don’t condone vigilante killings because there are times when innocent people can be wrongly accused…This is a special case though because the person killed is a proven criminal so I’ll let this one go….

  • Guest

    snacher at holdupper din un gunman…kinatalo niya kapwa snatcher kaya yari siya

  • white scorpion

    buti nga sa iyo. gusto mag-benefit sa pawis ng iba.

  • lagalagdude

  • ayupayupan77

    paano kaya kung yung bumaril ay holdaper pala at manghoholdap na ………….kung natuloy ang panghoholdap maaari palang makita sya ng mga pulis at magkabarilan at may mga matatamaan …….di kaya belssing in disguise or sabihin nalang natin na nagsakripisyo ang snatcher (sumalangit nawa)…………..

  • generalproblem
