CEBU CITY - A ''balut'' vendor was shot dead in this city on Monday evening.

Mitchelle Rallos, 54, was shot dead by an unidentified man using a .45-caliber pistol, according to homicide investigator PO1 Michaelangelo Singson.

Witnesses said Rallos was sitting outside his house in Barangay Hipodromo when the motorcycle-riding suspect shot him at least eight times.

The suspect immediately fled the scene after the shooting. Nobody saw his face because he wore a helmet.

Rallos was pronounced dead on arrival at the Cebu Doctor's University Hospital.

Authorities have yet to determine the motive behind the killing.
