MANILA, Philippines — A man was shot and killed by two unidentified motorcycle-riding men in Barangay Payatas, Quezon City, said the police.
The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) in a report said victim Alvin Alejo was gunned down along Everlasting Street on Thursday afternoon.
CCTV footage retrieved by authorities from around the area showed that the victim was standing beside his motorcycle on the side of the street when two men onboard a motorcycle came “with intent to kill,” according to the QCPD.
