Authorities in Bulacan province have intensified their manhunt operation to arrest two robbery suspects in the killing of the chief of police of San Miguel town.


PULILAN, Bulacan, Philippines — A 42-year-old man from Rizal province suffered injuries in a shooting incident on Sunday, Feb. 4, along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) in this town.

Colonel Relly Arnedo, Bulacan police director, said Aries Magayanes, a resident of Barangay Pag-asa in Rizal’s Binangonan town, was driving his Nissan Terra SUV along the southbound lane of NLEx in Barangay Dampol 2nd in this town at 4:35 p.m. when an unidentified armed man aboard an unknown vehicle fired shots at him.


As a result, Magayanes’ car collided with the steel side railings on the emergency shoulder of the highway.


Colonel Jerome Jay Ragonton, Pulilan police chief, said Magayanes had come from Ilocos Sur.
