Makati police have arrested two suspects who allegedly shot and killed a barangay watchman in Barangay Pembo, Makati City last September 6.

The victim, Manolito Buesa, 46 years old ,was shot in the chest by two motorcycle-riding gunmen.

Southern Police Director Tomas Apolinario identified the suspects as Eugene Aviles, 20 years old and Gerardo Soldevilla, 21 years old.

“Pinatay nila ang bantay-bayan, ang rason, lagi silang sinisita sa gawain nilang panghoholdap kaya nila binaril ito. Sila ay mga naka-motor at pinagbibintangan daw silang riding in tandem," Apolinario said. 

The two suspects escaped after the shooting but were later arrested by police.
