MANILA, Philippines – A traffic enforcer was shot by a lone gunman while manning his post on a busy street in Paranaque City this morning, police said.
Police Officer 2 Alfredo Dumusmog said that Dominador Lopez was directing traffic along Dr. A. Santos Avenue, Brgy. San Isidro, around 7 a.m. when an unidentified man approached and shot the victim.
“According to witnesses, someone approached the victim and shot him. The suspect then just walked away and rode a jeep heading to Sucat Highway,” Dumusmog said in a radio interview.
Witnesses also told police investigators that the assailant used a cal. 38 revolver in shooting Lopez, who was with other traffic personnel in the area at that time.
