Initial police investigation showed that at 2:30 a.m. Sunday, the victim was walking on Bacood corner Bataan Streets when one of the three men approached him and asked where he lived. Some witnesses told the police that Lagmay shouted at the man who asked him the question, irking the latter who yelled back at the victim.

The victim tried to draw a knife from his pocket, but the suspect stabbed him first in the chest and then fled with his cohorts. Lagmay was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital but he died during treatment.  Maricar B. Brizuela
