A man who sells closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras for a living was shot dead in Barangay Culiat, Quezon City on Tuesday night.

Victim Geovix Espino was having a drinking session inside his house with two of his employees when a gunman wearing a bonnet shot him multiple times.

Unfortunately, no CCTV camera was installed in the area when the shooting occurred.

The gunman was accompanied by five other men on board two motorcycles.

According to Espino’s employee, the victim had just finished talking to a woman when the shooting occurred.

"May dumating na babae medyo may edad, pinapasok niya at kinausap niya. Pag alis ng babae, hinatid niya sa labas, pag upo niya kasunod na niya ang gunman," the employee said.

Five empty bullet shells from a .45 caliber pistol were retrieved at the crime scene.

The motive behind the murder has yet to be determined. – Umagang Kay Ganda, May 2 2012
