Iceman killed in Manila
A man working for an ice dealer was gunned down on Monday night by robbers who took his cell phone and the establishment’s earnings for the day which totaled P7,000. Rodel Oliveros, 25, an employee of Medrano Ice Dealer on Cavite Street in Sta. Cruz, Manila, died on the spot due to a gunshot wound in the face. SPO1 Mario Asilo of the Manila Police District (MPD) homicide section said the robbery took place at around 9:30 p.m. on Monday, right after Oliveros collected money from a regular customer at Block 14, Old Site Baseco Compound in the Port Area. Asilo added that Oliveros was probably shot after he refused to give the money to the robbers. Jeannette I. Andrade
