MANILA, Philippines - Motorcycle-riding gunmen shot dead a man and his daughter while injuring a second daughter in Lamitan, Basilan Thursday afternoon.

Jack Lamahan was on board a motorcycle with 3 companions when they were shot by two riding-in-tandem suspects in Barangay Labuan past 4 p.m.

Lamahan and daughter Justine were declared dead on the spot. Claire Ann Jane was immediately brought to the Zamboanga City Medical Center and is still in critical condition.

A third child who was with the victims did not sustain any injuries.

Authorities have yet to identify the suspects and the motive for the killing.

Police said it was possible that Lamahan had a rift with some people in Lamitan City where he works.

Investigations are still ongoing. -- Report from RJ Rosalado, ABS-CBN News Zamboanga
