Mo­tor­ized killers Slay 2 junkies


Mo­tor­cy­cle-rid­ing gun­men are still on the loose.

Two men al­legedly in­volved in il­le­gal drugs were shot dead – vig­i­lante style – in sep­a­rate in­ci­dents in Taguig City and Pateros early yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Chief Supt. To­mas Apoli­nario Jr., di­rec­tor of South­ern Po­lice Dis­trict (SPD), iden­ti­fied the vic­tims as Eu­gene Padilla of Barangay Wawa, Taguig; and Osundo Calderon, tri­cy­cle driver, 49, of Barangay San Roque, Pateros.

Tri­cy­cle driver Calderon was shot by two rid­ing-in­tan­dem sus­pects around 3:15 a.m. while he was wait­ing for pas­sen­gers along M. Almeda St., Brgy. San Roque.

The sus­pects, with face masks, on board a mo­tor­cy­cle and clad in white and red shirts, rid­dled Calderon with bul­lets.

The sus­pects im­me­di­ately left the scene.

Around 4:30 a.m., Padilla was gunned down by two mo­tor­cy­cle-rid­ing men while he was walk­ing along Cadena de Amor Ex­ten­sion, Brgy. Wawa, Taguig.Po­lice said the masked sus­pects ap­peared be­hind Padilla and in a mat­ter of sec­onds, shot him re­peat­edly.

Both Padilla and Calderon were in­cluded in the drug watch lists in their barangays.

Po­lice are now con­duct­ing a fol­low up in­ves­ti­ga­tion on the in­ci­dents. (Martin A. Sadong­dong)
