MANILA, Philippines – Two alleged robbers were killed during a shootout incident in Pasay City on Saturday.

A security guard tackled the two alleged robbers who were fleeing on board a motorcycle after the former heard a woman shriek.

"’Pag labas ko po nakita ko inaagaw na po yung bag. Sabi ko huminto kayo. Una po tumakbo ‘yung nakamotor tapos yung isa huminto. Pagkatakbo na po, doon ko na po binaril," said one of the security guards, Eldon Eriste.

Eriste said he told his fellow guard to corner the other suspect on board a motorcycle.

"Noong hinarangan niya bumunot na po ;yung holdaper tapos pinagpuputukan na po siya," Eriste added.

One of the alleged robbers fell after being shot near Park Avenue in Pasay while the other was found dead along Roxas Blvd. near Baclaran church. -- Report from Henry Atuelan, dzMM
