Six masked men shot dead Alvin John Mendoza while at an eatery in Santa Ana, Manila on Wednesday. The barangay (village) official and owner of the eatery said Mendoza has no derogatory record and not included in drug watch list.
Police Officer 3 Milbert Balinggan said the victim has 10 gunshot wounds in the back, confirming an eyewitness account that the suspects, riding motorcycles, arrived and stopped behind Mendoza and fired shots.
The suspects escaped to Zobel Street but witnesses failed to see the faces of the suspects because they were wearing bonnets and masks. Also, the CCTV in the area was not working.
