DAVAO CITY —Unidentified gunmen on a motorbike shot and killed the son of a realtor in Tagum City, Davao del Norte on Monday, police said.

Chief Insp. Milgrace Driz, Southern Mindanao police regional spokesperson, said Senen Villaceran, 38, was about to park his black Hyundai Tucson in front of the office of his mother along Mabini Street in Barangay Magugpo South when the attack happened past 9 a.m.


Driz said a motorcycle with two men onboard suddenly arrived and the backrider pulled out a handgun and opened fire, hitting Villaceran several times in the body.

He died on the spot but his mother who was with him during the shooting was unhurt. The suspects then sped off towards the direction of Barangay San Miguel, Driz said.


She said responding policemen recovered from the victim’s body a Glock pistol with 11 bullets in its magazine, a pistol holster, and an alleged improvised glass tooter.

Police also recovered at the scene two bullets and seven empty casings, Driz said.

The regional police spokesperson said the Tagum City police station is now conducting an investigation into the shooting. /ee
