Man shot dead near Greenhills bank
(UPDATED) MANILA, Philippines - Despite a nationwide gun ban, another shooting occurred Monday morning, January 28 on Madison St., Greenhills, San Juan City police confirmed.
The victim, identified as Chinese businessman Kelvin Tan, owner of KT builders, was shot dead in his white car, which was parked in front of Chinabank's Greenhills branch.
Tan reportedly withdrew an P800,000 check from the bank before he was shot. Police confirmed that he had passed the check on to a man in a van before he was killed as he returned to his vehicle. The identity of the man who received the check is still unclear.
Police are currently looking at CCTV cameras to determine the identity of the suspect, but the gunman was said to be wearing a purple long-sleeved shirt and used a .45 caliber gun.
The shooting happened before 11 am, and only took a minute, said police.
Photos and tweets were posted by netizen @ageofbrillig, who was at the scene.
At 11:11 am, he tweeted, "No indication that suspect was apprehended at the scene. The fact that cops are not attending to the shot man presumes he is dead."
Another tweet 5 minutes later read, "There are at least 3 bullet holes in the driver's window of the car."
Police did not confirm how many shots were fired, but San Juan Police OIC Bernard Tambaoan said the suspects were riding in tandem. After shooting Tan, police said the gunman crossed the street and boarded a motorcycle where another man was waiting before driving away.
As of time of publication, the motive of the shooting was still undetermined. - Rappler.com
