Cop slain outside his house in Cebu City
CEBU CITY – A policeman was shot dead outside of his home in Sitio Central, Barangay Pit-os, Cebu City early Sunday.
Police were looking into personal grudge as motive in the killing of PO2 Romeo Jumalon, 42, who suffered multiple bullet wounds on his body.
Initial investigation showed that Jumalon was standing outside of his home in Barangay Pit-os around 4 a.m. when a vehicle approached him.
A still unidentified gunman then shot Jumalon several times.
Jumalon was assigned at the Regional Service Group of the Police Regional Office in Central Visayas. He also used to be with the Regional Personnel Holding Administrative Office and the Regional Police Anti-Illegal Drugs Office.
Senior Inspector Alvin Llamedo, chief of the Talamban Police Station, said they had yet to check if Jumalon had any derogatory records during his service./lb
