A woman was shot dead by unidentified assailants outside an apartment in Barangay San Antonio, Makati City early Friday morning.

The woman remained unidentified as of posting.

She was described to be in her late 30's with a shoulder-length hair. She wore a navy blue shirt and maong pants.

Initial investigation showed the shooting happened before 3 a.m. Friday after residents heard a successive burst of gunfire.

Residents then found a woman slumped to the ground, lying on her side with blood gushing down her head, outside an apartment in Camagong St. corner Baticulin St.

A nearby security guard reportedly saw two men on a motorcycle hurriedly leaving the area.

In an interview with a female resident, she said shooting incidents rarely took place in their area since it is well-lighted.

Authorities are now checking closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage that could help identify the suspects.
