SUBIC, Zambales — Unidentified assailants shot dead a man who was sleeping inside his home at dawn on Monday (Sept. 19), police said.

Joel Trinidad, 36, was shot multiple times by four gunmen who broke into his house in Barangay Matain here at 1:30 a.m., said Chief Insp. Leonardo Madrid, commander of Subic police station.


The attack was witnessed by the victim’s older brother and a nine-year-old nephew who were at the living room, police said.

The killers, who wore masks and hooded sweatshirts, fled in a gray sedan.


The victim’s brother said Trinidad was planning to surrender to authorities under the government’s “Oplan Tokhang” anti-drug campaign.

Police recovered three cartridges and a spent bullet fired from a .45-pistol from the crime scene.  SFM/rga
