Ex-cop shot dead inside QC house
A retired policeman was shot dead in Quezon City Sunday night.
The victim, identified as retired SPO4 Constancio Pitagan, was shot dead by at least six gunmen in his house in Barangay Payatas.
Pitagan's daughter said the suspects first threw rocks at their house to catch their attention.
The suspects, who wore balaclavas and were on board three motorcycles, then strafed Pitagan's house.
Pitagan's wife and children said the victim brought them inside a room to protect them from being shot.
The retired policeman, aware that he was the target of the suspects, then went out of the room to prevent the suspects from entering the house and shooting his family. The suspects then shot him multiple times, causing his death.
