ZAMBOANGA CITY - A security guard of a copra buying station was shot dead by a robber in this city last Wednesday.
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage showed the suspect barge into the establishment along Campaner Street and shoot security guard Renato Bendanillo.
A wounded Bendanillo still managed to go inside the establishment's office.
The suspect then tried to shoot the establishment's owner, Frederick Chua, but the gun did not fire. This allowed Chua to run away.
The suspect, whose face was captured in the CCTV footage, fled the scene on foot after the heist.
