3 security escorts killed in Las Pinas shooting
MANILA, Philippines – Three security aides of Banco Filipino’s Bobby Aguirre were shot dead by still unidentified assailants Saturday night, RADYO INQUIRER reported on Sunday.
Authorities said the victims – retired Senior Police Officer 2 Melvin Padaca, Police Officer 3 Luisito Macatunao and David Maguira—were killed inside Aguirre’s house in BF Homes, Las Pinas.
The police could not determine yet the motive of the killings but ruled out robbery, saying nothing was stolen from Aguirre’s house.
In fact, probers found a motorcycle at the crime scene, which they said probably used by the suspects.
The police were now looking at the possibility that Aguirre, who was allegedly receiving death threats, was the real target of the killers.
Based on initial investigation, three suspects entered Aquirre’s house and killed the victims.
The authorities also raised the possibility that the victims knew their killers.
