Police Col. Joyce Patrick Sangalang, Angeles City police chief, said the two security guards were suspects in the killing of another security guard working for a Korean mart on Fields Avenue here.


The suspects could be involved in the trade or distribution of illegal drugs, according to Sangalang.

It was not immediately known if the suspects’ clients were foreigners or locals.
