CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga -- A 58-year-old man who was going to attend a mass was gunned down by an unidentified gunman along the road of Second Block, Barangay Dolores, City of San Fernando, last Sunday.

In a report here, Superintendent Edilberto Pitallano, city chief of police, identified the fatality as Godofredo Quiambao, a resident of Barangay San Vicente, Sto. Tomas, Pampanga.

Quiambao, together with Erwin Dizon, Erick Joshua and John Roel Pineda, all residents of Sto. Tomas, arrived at the place on board a Toyota Vios (RLJ-495) to attend mass at the Christ in You Church.


When they alighted from the car, the gunman wearing a medical mask with eyeglasses, clad in a polo shirt and denim jeans medium built, fair complexion, and about five feet and 11 inches tall reportedly suddenly appeared, Pitallano said.

The suspect, armed with a caliber .9mm submachine gun, approached the victim who was sitting at the driver's seat and shot him.

Pitallano said the victim, who died on the spot, sustained gunshot wounds in the head and different parts of the body.

The gunman casually walked and boarded a black motorcycle without plate number driven by his cohort at the corner near the crime scene, Petillano said.

The suspects fled towards Angeles City.

Police recovered four spent shells and deformed metal slug from a caliber .9mm machine pistol.

Pitallano said police probers are now investigating the motive behind the killing.
