AN al­leged drug sus­pect was shot to death by two uniden­ti­fied men at Barangay 6 in San Car­los City, Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal Tues­day night.

Killed was Mar­lon Qui­jano, 48, of Barangay 6.

In­ves­ti­ga­tion showed that the vic­tim went out of his house when the two as­sailants ar­rived past 7 p.m.

One of the sus­pects was sup­posed to buy the vic­tim’s wrist­watch.

How­ever, the two as­sailants sud­denly fired at him and fled on a mo­tor­cy­cle.

Qui­jano suc­cumbed to three gun­shot wounds.

Po­lice re­cov­ered from the crime scene three car­tridges of .45 cal­iber pis­tol.

Po­lice said Qui­jano was pre­vi­ously charged for il­le­gal drugs and was re­cently re­leased from jail.

Po­lice can­not yet tell if the in­ci­dent was dru­gre­lated. They have yet to es­tab­lish the mo­tive.*
