A cigarette vendor suspected of snatching a necklace was killed by multiple gunshots by his victim Saturday night in Sampaloc, Manila.

The body was identified by his live-in partner as Renato Sanchez, 30, resident of Isarog Street in Quezon City and a member of the notorious “Bahala na Gang,” as indicated by his tattoos.

Investigation conducted by Senior Police Officer 2 Ronald Gallo of the Manila Police District homicide section showed that Sanchez grabbed the necklace of his victim around 8 p.m. in the Quiapo area and boarded a jeepney.

His victim, however, took another jeepney and followed Sanchez, cutting his way along Laong Laan Street corner Gelinos Street in front of Perpetual Help Hospital.

A security guard of the hospital told the police that the still unidentified gunman demanded the return of his necklace.

After Sanchez handed the necklace, the suspect asked the other passengers to get off the jeepney. He then pulled out a gun and shot Sanchez multiple times and fled toward Lacson Street.

Police are still investigating the identity of the gunman.
