MOTORCYCLE-RIDING gunmen killed an 11th grader outside his house in Barangay Bugo, this city, at 1:30 am yesterday.
Capt. Mario Mantala, Puerto police station commander, identified the victim as Mark Loyd Capablanca, 19, Balite Street in Zone 6, Bugo.
The victim was a student of the Barangay Bugo National Hugh School.
Authorities said the triggerman shot the teenager to the head.
Mantala said the attack was carried out by four people on two motorcycles.
One of the suspects was identified through a recording of closed circuit television camera installed near the crime scene.
“Naila sa pamilya sa biktima ang usa sa mga kauban sa suspek nga ila rang silingan tungod sa CCTV,” Mantala said.
Alice Capablanca, the victim’s mother, said she has no idea why her son was killed.
Mantala said it was the identified suspect who brought the victim to the triggerman.
Mantala said that after shooting the victim, another suspect took out a gun but it jammed.
Mantala said his men went to the identified suspect’s house but he was not home.
Mantala said the victim’s family would be filing charges against the suspects.
