PNP forms task force to probe ex-DPWH Regional Director's slay

CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga – The Pampanga police on Wednesday formed a special investigation task force group to identify and arrest the suspects behind the killing of a barangay chairman in Macababe town.

Senior Superintendent Oscar Albayalde, Pampanga police provincial director, said that unidentified armed men riding-in-tandem on board a motorcycle shot dead Tuesday village chief Danilo Manalang, 60, of barangay San Jose, Macabebe town.

Albayalde said the task group will be headed by Superintendent Ricardo Pangan, deputy provincial director for operations.

As of this writing, he said they are still clueless on the motive behind Manalang’s slaying.

Albayalde said the victim, together with his companions, were buying food in a canteen located along Barangay Sto. Rosario in Macabebe town when a lone gunman suddenly appeared and shot him at close range.

The suspect shot the victim three times before boarding a parked motorcycle and fled towards Barangay San Rafael, Macabebe town.

The victim was immediately taken to Holy Rosary Hospital also in Macabebe but was declared dead on arrival by attending doctors, Albayalde said.

The gunman was wearing a bonnet and black jacket and armed with a caliber .45 pistol, he added. (PNA)
