ORMOC CITY—A former policeman was killed by still unidentified assailants around 7:10 a.m. on Monday, June 24, in Barangay Mercedes, Catbalogan City.

Roy Pagunsan was on his way home on board his motorcycle when he was gunned down by the men who were on board a van, said Lt. Col. Bella Rentuaya, spokesperson of the Police Regional Office in Eastern Visayas.


Recovered from the crime scene were 12 empty shells of M-16 Armalite rifle.

In June 2016, Pagunsan was dismissed from the service after he was involved in an alleged case of car theft.
