DAVAO CITY – A po­lice of­fi­cer died af­ter of­fer­ing a ride to his own killers Mon­day morning, in Purok 5, Si­tio Lu­man, Brgy. New Va­len­cia, Tug­bok, here.

Ac­cord­ing to the ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tion, Garol had just dropped off his wife to work, when he obliged two men who asked for a lift on his mo­tor­cy­cle.

The same two men would re­peat­edly shoot Garol a few min­utes later, even go­ing on to es­cape on board his mo­tor­cy­cle.

Garol was as­signed at the Baguio District po­lice sta­tion.

“He was a good pub­lic ser­vant, po­lice of­fi­cer and lov­ing hus­band,” he added.
