DAVAO CITY - A businessman was shot dead in Barangay Talandang, Tugbok, Davao City on Tuesday morning.

Manuel Maningo, 65, was killed by unidentified armed men inside his house.

A neighbor of the victim said he saw a group of men armed with long firearms outside the house of Maningo.

Normie Onas said he heard continuous gun shots but failed to report it immediately to authorities because there was no phone signal in the area.

Tugbok Police Senior Inspector Nolan Tagsip said seven unidentified armed men entered the house of Manuel Maningo and shot him several times. 

Maningo's son was wounded after being hit on the head by armed men.

The armed men escaped immediately on board a motorcycle heading towards Barangay Pangyan. The armed men also took a gun owned by Maningo.

Police said they have yet to determine the motive for the crime.
