MANILA - Former teen actor John Wayne Sace and his friend sustained injuries after motorcycle-riding gunmen shot them in Pasig City Monday night.

Initial investigation showed that Sace and his friend Erik Sabino were waiting for someone around 11:10 p.m. when two unidentified suspects repeatedly fired at them along Dr. Sixto Antonio Avenue. The suspects fled on board a motorcycle while the victims were rushed to Rizal Medical Center.

Sace, 27, is under observation after he was hit by a lone bullet, injuring his waist, while Sabino was declared dead upon arrival at the hospital due to multiple gunshot wounds. 

Pasig City police officials confirmed that Sace and Sabino are on the city's drugs watch list for allegedly peddling illegal drugs.
