MANILA – One died and five others were wounded in a shooting incident following a drag racing event in Quezon City before dawn on Tuesday.

A companion of the victims, who identified himself as Neptali Rosales, said his group played against a group of about 12 individuals from Cavite in a motorcycle racing event along Mindanao Avenue Extension in Barangay Greater Lagro.

The racing event involved a P40,000 bet, according to Rosales.

Shot dead was 23-year-old Jackie Pajaroja, who was reportedly a hairstylist. Pajaroja's five other companions were wounded.

The unidentified suspects fled the scene after the shooting.
