MANILA – A porter died after he was gunned down along a small alley in Pier 18 Katuparan Street, Vitas in Tondo, Maynila early Sunday morning.

PO2 Danilo Fabiolas of the Smokey Mountain Police Community identified the victim as Roel Gamboa, 33.

Based on the investigation of the Manila Police District, Gamboa was already on his way to work when he was shot twice by a still-unidentified suspect.

Before the incident, residents of Pier 18 Katuparan Street said they heard Gamboa arguing with someone.

Police said Gamboa’s wife probably has an idea as to who shot her husband but she has yet to give a statement. – from a report by Dennis Datu, dzMM
