OLONGAPO CITY — A 55-year-old businessman was shot dead by two masked men during a jewelry heist at his house in Iba town, Zambales province on Tuesday night, police said.
Danilo Jaen had just arrived home with his wife, Elizabeth, 49, when the assailants forced their way into the house and declared a robbery at about 6 p.m. The couple owns a jewelry shop, police said.
