MANILA – A jeepney driver was shot dead in Manila before midnight Tuesday.
The victim, identified as Allan Empinio, was inside his parked jeepney at the corner of Tayuman and Almeda streets when a motorcycle-riding man shot him in the head.
A closed-capture circuit television (CCTV) camera captured the incident. The footage shows several bystanders running after hearing the gunshots.
Empinio's live-in partner, Celeste Loste, was with the victim inside the jeepney when the shooting occurred. She said she did not see the face of the gunman.
Loste admitted that Empinio was a drug addict.
