MANILA - A man was shot dead while playing the coin game "kara krus" at a wake in Batasan Hills, Quezon City Friday morning.

The victim, identified as 29-year-old Edwin Molinas, sustained three gunshot wounds in the head.

Initial investigation showed that Molinas was playing "kara krus" when the still unidentifed gunman suddenly approached him and shot him at close range.

PO3 Michael De Leon of Quezon City Police Station 6 said they recovered from the crime scene six bullet shells from a.45-caliber pistol.

Authorities have yet to determine the motive behind the killing. -- Report from Johnson Manabat, dzMM
