MANILA, Philippines - Two persons were shot dead on board a motorized tanker early morning on Friday off Delpan in Tondo, Manila.

Boat Captain Manuel Ramilo and his pump man Ronaldo Rodrigo were found dead inside the bridge of the M/T Sara Margarita.

Police said the incident happened while the boat was about to sail for Bataan.

The suspect identified as another crewmember Reynaldo Bulawan allegedly had a grudge against the two victims.

After the incident, Bulawan escaped after ordering Chief Mate Edwin Gabawen to bring the boat back to Delpan port.

Authorities are still investigating the incident. Report from Jerome Lantin, ABS-CBN News
