WATCH: Police officer's ambush in Capas town caught on CCTV

MANILA, Philippines — The fatal broad daylight assault on a policeman in Capas, Tarlac, on Tuesday was recorded in closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera installed along the highway.


Videos making the rounds on social media showed that victim Police Staff Sergeant Michael Maun, aboard a  black Toyota Corolla Altis, had just turned right when another black sedan suddenly overtook him and blocked his path while being fired upon by unidentified suspects from inside the vehicle.
