2 men killed after mugging pizza store manager in Bulacan
CITY OF MALOLOS –Two motorcycle riders were killed early Monday by the police after they allegedly mugged a pizza store manager on MacArthur Highway here.
Eulbert de Guzman, 26, manager of Domino’s Pizza parlor, was walking toward a convenience store beside the Bulacan provincial capitol here at 3:30 a.m. when he was held up by the men on a motorcycle. The robbers fled with De Guzman’s mobile telephone and P1,000 cash.
Alerted by De Guzman, the police spotted a group of motorcycle riders on the Capitol View Park-Ople diversion road at around 4 a.m.
De Guzman, who was with a police response team, pointed out the suspects in the group. However, as the policemen approached the group, two motorcycle riders fired at them and were killed when the lawmen fired back, said Supt. Heryl Bruno, Malolos police chief.
The other motorcycle riders fled.
Bruno said the slain suspects have not been identified. Forensic investigators recovered from them handguns and sachets containing a still undetermined substance. The police did not find De Guzman’s phone and money. /je
