CEBU - A man was shot dead by motorcycle-riding gunmen while on his way home from the Mandaue City Prosecutor's Office on Tuesday.

The victim was identified as Pablito Globenares. Three of his companions were wounded, while one was able to escape.

Those who were rushed to the hospital for treatment were identified as Daisy Pacho, a certain Gang-gang, and Jerson Hermosa, the driver of the multivan.

Another companion, Eva Valiente, was able to escape when the two gunmen attacked them.

Based on initial investigation, the gunmen tailed the victims from Mandaue City Prosecutor's Office until they reached E. Rosal Street in Barangay Guizo at about 12:30 p.m.

Globenares recently posted bail for possession of illegal drugs and firearms. He was arrested by Basak Police when he got involved in a traffic incident on New Year's Day and authorities found packs of shabu and firearms in his possession.

Authorities are still trying to identify the suspects and establish the motive behind the crime.
