Drug suspect shot dead in Ormoc City
ORMOC CITY — A drug suspect who was just released from prison last year was shot dead by still unidentified persons on board a four-wheel vehicle in Barangay Lilo-an, Ormoc City on Tuesday (June 14).
Jan Michael Manacap was feeding his fighting cocks when the perpetrators arrived and shot him several times, causing his instantaneous death, said Lt. Rodolfo Mercolita, chief of the Police Station 3.
The culprits then left the area on board a white vehicle, according to the victim’s neighbors.
Manacap was arrested in Naval, Biliran on July 16, 2016 but was released last year after he entered a plea bargaining agreement wherein he pleaded to a lesser offense in exchange for the dropping of the charges against him in court.
