MANILA, Philippines -- A man was shot dead by motorcycle-riding gunmen in Barangay Damayang Lagi, Quezon City.

Victim Generoso Cobarrubias was just a few steps away from his house when two men on board a motorcycle shot him in the chest in front of his wife and three children.

The victim was pronounced dead on arrival in the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center.

PO3 George Santiago of the Quezon City Police District said, "Sa salaysay, tumatawid sa Banco de Oro, dun lang sila sa tapat nakatira. Dalawang tao riding in tandem, parehas nakahelmet."

Cobarrubias' brother, Gerry, was also shot dead by riding-in-tandem gunmen last February in Barangay Commonwealth.

Police are now looking into family feud as possible motive for killing. 

Santiago said, "Ayon sa asawa niya na dalawang buwan pa lang dito sa Manila, bakit pinagbabaril 'yung asawa niya katulad nang sa kapatid. 'Baka paghihiganti. Pagdating ko po dito may pag-aaway ang pamilya.'"

Police recovered four empty bullet shells from a revolver at the crime scene. -- Report from Jacque Manabat, ABS-CBN News
